Two of our boys take music lessons with Lee and are thrilled with his ability to both stretch their abilitys and encourage as well! We have been very pleased with Lees skills, confidence, and friendliness towards our entire family. He is an excellent teacher and challenges our boys to reach beyond their imagination to higher lengths of achievement! Would not have chose a different teacher again this year and we have had others, but he succeeds them all!Sep 30, 2012
Lee Gattenby taught my daughter the basic guitar chords, finger placement, and voice lessons. What stood out the most was his knowledge of the instrument, his patience with my daughter, his teaching techniques, and the enthusiasm he brought to the learning process.Sep 30, 2012
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a registered RGT tutor (from the United Kingdom), and a nationally accredited vocal instructor through NATS. My students have competed locally and internationally (as of this post we have take the Kenai Peninsula's Alaska's Got Talent three years in a row and taken the state title once.
- What types of customers have you worked with?As a certified homeschool instructor, I provide a level of music education that meets the high standard of parents looking for quality instruction. Homeschool registration paperwork (Connections for instance) is completed on-site and submitted by email to the homeschool advisors. In many cases this means that there is no out-of-pocket expenses to the client.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?I prefer that I be the last instructor that a student considered. The reason being that there are plenty of teachers who instruct from a hobbiest perspective, (which is fine). However, I look for students who want to go on to music careers (the emphasis is different, and much more serious). A lot of work is put into the students MINDSET to succeed. Its more important the then technical aspects of music by far. You really have to want to do this, and its not easy.
