“Music has been my life since I was 4 years old. I started as a pianist after falling in love with the Liberace Show and the piano. At 12 I changed to bass and have never looked back. I have been a touring and studio musician for almost 50 years now and still as busy as ever. I encourage all to find their passion and GO FOR IT”.

Thank you Lee for your believing in our programs and for helping Dream A World Education bring the arts into the lives of children who might otherwise never experience the arts.!
