My name is Lee and I’m a guitarist based in Cardiff, UK.
As a Teacher, I've taught guitar for 18 years in a variety of capacities including - privately in person and online via Skype, in schools, colleges, and corporate companies to hundreds of different people of all ages and abilities around South Wales and London.
I’m also one of a very few JustinGuitar Approved Teachers.
As a Student, I’ve studied with some of the very best guitar teachers in the UK including Justin Sandercoe (JustinGuitar.com), Martin Goulding (Guitar Techniques Magazine), and Dario Cortese (ICMP London). I hold a BSc Honours degree in Music Technology, a NOCN qualification in Creative Music Making, and I reached the 2009 ICMP Guitar Diploma Scholarship Finals in London.
As a Performer, from 2000 to 2010 (in the days of CDs), I gigged regularly around South Wales and the UK.
Now with more of a focus on family life, I dedicate my professional development to teaching. I still write guitar loops for fun and occasionally put out the odd video on Instagram.
Outside of music, my favourite things are family adventures with my wife and nine-year-old twins, playing lots of tennis, healthy living, and getting together with family and friends.
The Beginner stage of your guitar journey is the most important stage you’ll go through as a guitarist. It’s the stage where your musical and technical foundations are built, and your practice habits are developed. It’s also the stage where learning to play guitar feels most difficult, so it's important that you start off on the right foot. In your beginner guitar lessons Cardiff, we'll make sure you do just that.
Learning a musical instrument can benefit your child in many positive ways, such as developing social, academic and physical skills, as well as cultivating patience, discipline, and self-esteem.

I really enjoy teaching and have been doing it a long time. One of the best feelings of all though, is when a student is really absorbing ideas and concepts you share with them. They go away and work real hard on their own and come back with the perfect questions. Lee was one of those students and I really enjoyed working with him on his guitar journey and watching him make significant progress over a year. That was long ago now and I've no doubt he's become an excellent teacher and player and hope you enjoy taking lessons with him!
I’ve only been taking lessons with Lee for a couple of months but I’m literally itching to overhear somebody say they’re thinking of taking up guitar so I can interject myself into the conversation and recommend Mr. Mead-Batten.
Lee probably has the best way with children of almost anyone I’ve ever met-he is gentle and encouraging. Lenny progressed really well with Lee, and, although he was upset when Lee moved home to Wales, is now very successfully continuing his lessons via Skype.
Whether we meet in person, or over skype, the result is the same – a thoroughly enjoyable hour working through musical theory, rhythm and timing, playing technique, or the finer points of Jimi Hendrix’s sound. He is a fantastic guitar player and a truly gifted teacher who I cannot recommend highly enough.
Lee has been teaching my boys for 4 years. He is the best teacher my kids have ever had. He’s patient, energetic and fun. My boys never tire of lessons with him or complain it’s time for guitar. I like the way he doesn’t force them to practice, but inspires them in lessons so that they independently pick up a guitar anyway.
Lessons are £35 per 55 minutes and £18 per 30 minutes.
