I am a music educator with 15 years teaching experience in private lessons, public schools, and private schools. I play many instruments and many different styles. I break the material down in a way everyone can understand and I don't let students walk away confused about the material or have unanswered questions. I love to teach all age groups and all learning styles.

Lee teaches acoustic guitar using a holistic and minimalist musical approach — you only learn what you really need to know. Learn how to play songs and have fun while you increase your guitar skills. Students can learn on a steel-string acoustic guitar, or a nylon string (classical) guitar. No note-reading is required to learn chord progressions, song structure, and effective strumming and picking patterns for folk, blues and rock acoustic guitar. Lee offers her own visual materials and chord grids, popular acoustic songs, and select acoustic guitar method books. She's also a Beatles expert and can take you from "Twist and Shout" to "Blackbird". Lee has performed and recorded as a singer-songwriter-guitarist since 2001, including hundreds of performances in the New Orleans area, ten years of performances at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, and appearances at acoustic venues across the USA. • Award-winning performing singer-songwriter • Bachelor of Music Education from Loyola University, New Orleans (Instrumental Music) • Master of Music from Belmont University, Nashville (Instrumental Pedagogy) • Guitar Instructor for community college, high school and middle school  • "Acoustic Intensive" instructor in acoustic guitar, music theory and songwriting for the National Guitar Workshop in New Orleans, Austin, Chicago, and Nashville

Lessons are simple & easy for all ages of begginner guitarists! Learn your favorite songs right away! Each lesson will consist of a unique and personalized curriculum to fit your needs! This will be done at a pace that allows for confidence to be built and a complete understanding of the material to become a pro guitar player! Along with your favorite songs, each student is taught what I call 'beginning fundimentals'. These are a basic set of skills that can help any guitarist become an independent and self-sufficient musician with a strong fundamental foundation. Crucial skills such as: reading music TAB scales various chords playing your favorite songs and more... will be taught in each lesson. Each lesson will be just as enjoyable as it is informative. *Note for in-person lessons at teacher's location* Due to current circumstances mask and temp check are required for in person lessons at teacher's locations. Thank you for helping keep everyone safe!

I am an experienced guitar teacher with 10+ years of professional career behind me. I'm looking for eager students of all ages who would like to start learning the basics of the guitar! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of good playing habits (learning the right songs and techniques that you makes you a better musician!). I specialize in rock, funk and pop. I focus on playing by memory but sheet music and cheat sheets are also available upon request. I also have the following tools available to use during lessons: sound recording equipment, sheet music, and more. Let's grab the guitar and let's start play some songs :)

She is wonderful. That she gave me a hint of her own talents while demonstrating something for me was a gift. I am so glad she’s consented to help me relearn guitar.

Music has been an integral part of my life

Barbara M.

By Barbara M.-Virginia Beach Guitar Teacher

As a guitar teacher in Virginia Beach, music has been an integral part of my life. Music has played a major role in both my personal and professional life. I embrace the chance to be immersed in it, to share my enthusiasm for it, and to use my expertise in the area of music education. During guitar lessons, I promote creative development and student performance skills.

I have had guitar students, two in particular, who started from scratch and practiced their way up to a performance level, while also learning to sing at the same time. The students and their parents were so proud! It was wonderful to see.

Watching someone start to play an instrument, be it guitar, piano or voice, with the desire to accomplish, create, and grow is a wonderful gift. Having the opportunity to witness this gift is a rewarding experience for me and my students. I have taught people of all ages who never thought they COULD do what I told them they WOULD be able to do. They just needed the chance and the guidance to try. I love sharing that!
