Who is this guy on the podcast?
Hey there! I’m Lee Wayne Anderson. With a total of 29 years helping students achieve their dreams, it has been my honor to help beginner, intermediate and professional guitar players achieve fantastic results.
With a combination of formal training at University of the Arts and practical knowledge as a member of Lee Anderson Band, E. G. Kight Band and gigs with countless others, I have taken what I have learned and created a road-map to success on the guitar like no other.
Now my focus is bringing this time and student tested guitar method directly to players like you who want to bypass the sea of free YouTube videos, blog posts and lesson sites that leave you confused, overwhelmed and not any better than you were before, and get on a focused tested path to success on the guitar.
I'd have to say that Lee's way of teaching is the one I've gained the most from. He keeps it interesting and teaches a mix of fundamentals along with the things students want to learn. He has also given me direction and helpful advice for achieving my own musical goals, and I appreciate that his extensive background as a musician allows him to do so.
Lee's methods are easy to follow and give you a background in technique and theory as well as songs. He gives me encouragement and makes me believe I may actually be onstage one day.
I finally made the leap and signed for my first guitar lesson having played for a while but not being able to move forward. My first few lessons Lee has given me inspiration that I can do this and am beginning to learn the basics I missed along the way.
