In Person Cello Lessons

5.0(3 reviews)


Hello! I am a cellist based in North Long Beach, however I teach and gig all over Southern California. I hold a bachelor’s degree in cello performance from the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at CSULB. I am currently at the end of my Master’s degree at Bob Cole with LA cellist Joon Sung Jun.

I currently work as a string assistant for elementary in the Manhattan Beach School District. As a private cello teacher I have worked with all age groups. From brand new beginners to returning music lovers. My lessons are catered to each student’s individual personality to best help them achieve their cellist goals. I take great pride in guiding and getting to know all of my students. In my years of teaching I have found a great sense of joy watching my students grow into the cellists they are today.

As a performer my work spans from recording studios to music festivals and everything in between. I have subbed with the Bakersfield Symphonic Orchestra. Currently I am a sectional cellist in the Bob Cole Conservatory Symphonic Orchestra.

    As an adult learner ( three years into my cello journey) I can highly recommend Sebastian Lee. His patience, dedication and support have allowed me to make excellent progress. He is energetic, enthusiastic and committed to his students progress.
    Thanks Sebastian!

    Sebastian is a delight to work with. His enthusiasm and ability to communicate has taken our daughter to great heights with the cello in a short amount of time. Our daughter enjoys her lessons with Sebastian tremendously and has progressed quickly.
