Lee is an International Bluegrass Music Association award-winning instrumentalist and renowned teacher of private lessons and music camps. His musical
journey started at the age of eight when he got his first fiddle and that path led him through countless lessons and music camps and eventually to
an intense study of bluegrass music at the college level and a degree in Commercial Music. While attending the Bluegrass & Country Music Program
at South Plains College, Nate joined the Alan Munde Gazette. He toured with the band for six years and played fiddle on their second release “Made
To Last”. After
moving to Nashville in 2012, Nate toured with Irene Kelley, Town Mountain, and the Jim Hurst Trio. In 2017, Nate joined the Becky Buller Band as their mandolin player and twin fiddler.
Although Nate is in demand on stage and in the studio, his first love and finest skill is teaching. With more than thirteen years’ experience as a teacher and workshop instructor, Nate has gained a loyal following of students who enjoy his comprehensive teaching methods and relaxed, encouraging demeanor. Nate doesn’t just teach you a song; he teaches you how to play melody, chords, improvise, and groove on that song. With an affinity for turning beginners into jammers, and jammers into professionals, Nate has developed a curriculum that teaches you to play well with others and become the player you’ve always wanted to be!
