Teaching since:
August 2010

While I teach many styles of music, I emphasize foundations in classical technique and encourage all of my students to have a basic understanding of musical principles in order to strengthen their playing and comprehension of the music. I received my Bachelors and Masters of Music in Guitar Performance from the Peabody Conservatory and currently am working on my Doctorate at the University of Arizona; I also teach and perform throughout the Tucson area. All of my students are encouraged to participate in recitals and performances while they are taking lessons. I believe that sharing your musical talents is an important part of learning an instrument.

LeeLee is a really wonderful teacher. She’s calm, patient, knowledgeable, and flexible. She is able to offer insights that are allowing me to make much faster progress than I ever have on my own or with any other ukulele teacher, so I’m motivated to continue. With her instruction, I’m finally enjoying playing my instrument, and I see that proficiency is on the horizon. I’d recommend her to anyone.

I started taking ukulele lessons with LeeLee as an adult. She was very encouraging, professional, and flexible. She focused on the basic musical elements, always explaining concepts. She was willing to explore the types of songs I wanted to learn to play. She made taking lessons again very fun. I would highly recommend her as a teacher.

LeeLee was a great teacher for my spirited 10 year old. She was flexible, responsive and easy-going, and the pace of the lessons was just right. She and my daughter really became friends during the course of the lessons, which helped a lot with my daughter's interest. Would absolutely choose LeeLee again.

LeeLee is wonderful! My daughter wanted to quit guitar and hated practicing before LeeLee came along. Now under LeeLee's tutelage, she loves playing the guitar, and practicing is no longer work but fun! LeeLee's sweet and encouraging personality, along with her expert teaching skills, has really helped my daughter to shine. LeeLee is also very professional. She is always on time and is willing to work with my schedule when unexpected events come up. We are very thankful to have LeeLee instructing our daughter. She is a top notch instructor!
