About Lee

Hello future students I am sure I'm the teacher for you, I will be focusing on the fundamentals of guitar playing which begins with fretboard knowledge, basics chord voicing and scale patterns all in the context of a song. We will apply what we learn to actual songs that have stood the test of time, such as Jim Croce's "Time in a Bottle and James Taylor's "Fire and Rain" songs that I believe have merit for the ages to come. I will focus on Bossa Nova music from Jobim such as Girl from Ipanema and much more. I am a finger stylist and as such will not be utilizing a pick for my instruction.

I hope I've given you some insight into what you can expect from me. Signup and lets get started on our journey of making and playing music live. As an added advantage of learning music, it has been proven that music instruction enhances mental and social well being. So lets get started!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Guitar

I am self taught and have had classical guitar instruction. I am results oriented by virtue of my 20+ years of experience as a guitarist and teacher. I play with my fingers and incorporate harmony and melody in my approach to making the guitar sing as well as interplay with the vocalist. You will get nothing less than my undivided attention, and that's my word.
