“Awesome teacher” 5/5 stars Boulder Guitar Studio Review 
I wouldn’t consider getting instruction from anybody but Lee. From his lifetime devotion to music, Lee has an encyclopedic knowledge of musical styles and playing techniques, which he uses to customize lessons to the student’s particular goals. That willingness to adapt to my particular needs and desires, along with his true passion for all types of music, makes Lee an outstanding teacher.
