As a performer in a blues band, and producer of blues albums I find there's a special place in my heart for the blues. Acoustic, electric, flat picking, finger picking, or slide guitar. Mississippi Delta blues, Texas blues, English blues, Southern blues, Chicago blues, and more. Whether you want to be a weekend warrior who plays around the campfire, or someone who wants to study at a professional or advanced level, we can make that happen!!!! My unique approach to teaching guitar will have you playing guitar on the first day. No joke.

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

My main focus throughout my career can be broken down into 3 categories: -Technique -Knowledge of the fretboard -Chord and Scale knowledge I guarantee that if you are comfortable with these 3 areas, you will be able to play whatever you want, any style, any genre. Of course once the basics are finished we can then move into the specifics of your chosen style or chosen combination of styles. For example: -Jazz- We would start to focus more on larger chord voicings as well as a more complex scale language. Heavy emphasis on improvising -Blues- Less of an emphasis on chords and more on soloing, specifically articulation techniques like bending, sliding, vibrato, legato (hammer ons/pull offs), basically all of the things that will make you sound "bluesy" -Singer/Songwriter- Less emphasis on lead playing and more on keys, chord voicing, and chord progressions. Also song structure and melodic note choice. -Metal- Heavy emphasis on techniques such as hybrid picking, alternate picking, sweep picking, two-hand tapping, etc. Rhythm and ear training also becomes more important as many of the riffs you find in metal are not always in a key or based on simple rhythms. They instead come from what you think sounds good in your head. As you can see, your path as a "metal" guitarist can and will probably be different from the path of a "singer-songwriter" guitarist. They both, however, start from the same 3 concepts.
