Born with a passion for music, Lee has been playing instruments for as long as he can remember. He earned his BA at UW-Madison in Musical Performance in 2000 with a focus on classical guitar and jazz studies. His studies also included extensive theory training.

Lee has been playing guitar since 1992 and has played with original bands and a few cover rock bands. Some venues include The Barrymore Theatre, Memorial Union Terrace, and Summerfest. He has been teaching guitar lessons privately since 1999 and in group settings since 2004. As a mentor, he focuses on individual development of musicians as well as preparing students for group dynamics in the future. Each curriculum is personalized so students can reach their own goals as quickly as possible.

Lee believes that every person should get the opportunity to have a fulfilling relationship with music, whether it is casual or professional.
