    “My name is Michael Lee and I’m a co-founder of XYZ music academy. I am also the resident guitar, bass and vocals tutor. I began my musical journey in the mid-nineties in the height of the Brit-pop era led by the likes of Oasis and Blur. It was this movement that first prompted me to pick up a guitar at the age of 12. Since then my life has revolved around everything musical from learning several instruments to joining several bands and performing all over the country. I took music seriously from day one and have racked up several qualifications along the way including a Jazz, popular and Commercial music degree as well as a grade eight qualification in guitar. This thirst for knowledge hasn’t subsided since I’m constantly looking for ways to improve my craft as well as the craft of the students I teach.!

    Aside from my instrumental skills, one of my biggest musical passions is composing. I have released several albums and have many years of experience both in the studio writing and recording as well as performing live as a guitarist and vocalist.”
