    Ms. Lee has been teaching at Big Sky, Franklin, and Hawthorne since 2019. Her office is 78A in the music wing at Big Sky.

    I am a 4th-generation Montanan and teacher! I began playing the violin when I was seven and participated as a student in many of the events I now attend as a teacher (All State Orchestra, District and State Music Festival, and various summer camps). I attended MSU in Bozeman for my Bachelors in Music Education and upon graduation moved to South Dakota to teach high school orchestra for a few years. I then relocated to Milwaukee where I completed my Master of Music degree with an emphasis in String Pedagogy at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. After graduating I held a variety of teaching positions and worked as a freelance musician. I am so excited to be back in Montana closer to my family and the mountains. In addition to making and teaching music I enjoy cooking, going to plays and concerts, knitting, travel, puzzles, reading, doing yoga, and spending time outdoors with my dog, Peyton.
