Guitarist and educator Leah K. loves introducing young beginners to their first songs, helping adult students rediscover their inner musician, and guiding classical and flamenco players in advanced, specialized study. Leah has been guiding children and adults in their musical journeys for nearly ten years. Her classes are positive and productive, and she adapts her teaching to give each individual the kind of instruction they need to enjoy the guitar and develop their musicality.
Leah has been performing as a soloist and in classical, flamenco, and world music ensembles for ten years. In her hometown of Richmond, VA, Leah founded and led the flamenco-inspired ensemble Sueños Gitanos, accompanied Portuguese Fado songs the group Fado Nosso, and performed classical guitar with the Richmond Guitar Quartet. Leah currently accompanies flamenco singers and dancers in Seville, Spain and returns regularly to the USA for concerts and performances, including Virginia Commonwealth University's Flamenco Festival.

Leah's students ranged in age from five to seventy-five and genres included general beginning guitar, classical guitar, flamenco guitar, pop, folk, rock, fingerstyle, and bluegrass guitar.
