Music was Lee’s first love. He started playing classical piano at the age of 6, and continued throughout college. He attended Berklee College of Music as a teen and then went on to study at the infamous Dick Grove School of Music in Studio City, CA. There he studied with some of the greatest musicians in the country, from Dick Grove himself to Clare Fisher, Joe Harnell, Lou Levy and David Angel.
As a touring musician, Lee has shared the stage with some of music’s most famous luminaries, including George Michael, Jermaine Stewart, Manhattan Transfer, Chick Corea, The Brecker Brothers and others. He apprenticed under renowned vocal coach Seth Riggs, and became the Education Advisor for Riggs’ Speech Level Singing International society. There, he helped organize and run educational seminars for the local SLS Teachers to ensure they were properly trained in the SLS Technique. He eventually achieved the title of Master Coach, and has since been helping to educate a new generation of up-and-coming singers and musicians.
Over the course of his career, he has coached Saoirse Ronan (Little Women) Melanie Brown (Spice Girls, America’s Got Talent), Mike Dirnt (Green Day), Diego Schoening (Timbiriche, Un Nueva Dia), Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie, That 70’s Show), Emma Caulfield (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Once Upon A Time), Fatlip (The Pharcyde) and many others. He knows what it takes to get the most out of your instrument, and will help you achieve a level of vocal proficiency you only dreamed possible.
