Jae Lee is an award-winning New York-based composer, organist, pianist, and educator. As a versatile classical musician, he breaks boundaries between genres and is equally at home with jazz, gospel, and pop idioms. He actively concertizes around the United States and is commissioned by many ensembles around the world. He has been featured in prestigious venues like Carnegie Hall (Stern Auditorium), John F. Kennedy Center, and Fox Theatre in Atlanta.
A devoted educator, he currently teaches music theory to highly gifted students at Juilliard's Pre-College Division. While a student, he was a Lecturing Teaching Fellow in the Music Theory Department at Juilliard, a position he held since his third year of undergraduate studies. He also served as the Graduate Studies Teaching Assistant for classes on Beethoven and the American Symphony.
He graduated with his Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degree from Juilliard from the “highly selective” Accelerated Bachelors/Masters program studying under Dr. Christopher Rouse. He also graduated with "Academic Honors," which was only awarded to six students in the entire graduating class of 2017.
