Her principal teacher at MSU is Angella Ahn of the Ahn Trio.

In addition to violin, she studies viola with Anna Jesaitis, plays with the 11th Ave. String Quartet, and is a member of the MSU Chorale. Lee has also performed with the Bozeman Symphony and Intermountain Opera.

Lee has held several leadership roles in the MSU Symphony and toured with the group to Southeast Asia in 2009. Lee is a certified Suzuki violin teacher and a student in the University Honors Program. After graduation, Lee plans to teach in the public schools as well as teach privately. Eventually, she plans to attend graduate school and teach music education at the collegiate level.
