A native of Ft. Worth, Texas, Lee graduated from Texas Christian University, cum laude, with a major in music education and a minor in organ performance. As a student of the late Dr. Ruth Whitlock, Lee hones his skills in vocal music education. Through the Choristers Guild Leadership Training Program, Lee studied with Helen Kemp and John Yarrington. Personal mentoring in choral skills combined the best of Lee's experiences with Paul Salamunovich; Mike Kemp; Ronald Shirey; Lara Hoggard; Bev Hensen, and his colleague at the Cathedral for the past seventeen years, Gregory Labus.
As a festival conductor and clinician, Lee has presented workshops, primarily in the area of his work with children's choirs, throughout the United States. He has served as clinician for the National Choristers Guild summer seminars in both Grand Rapids and Kansas City. In 1987, he conducted the five-hundred-voice choir for the Papal Mass held in San Antonio. In 1993, he served as conductor of the Papal Mass in Denver, conducting over seven hundred young singers for the International World Youth Day Festival.
