My name is Barbara Lee, I have lived in Bonney Lake, Washington for almost 30 years.

I have been playing the flute for about 36 years. I began playing when I was about 16 years old, in High School, in Mission Viejo California. I played in beginning band and then in the stage jazz band. I took Music Theory in Saddleback Junior College for about one year. I worked at Mission Music a fine Music Store for about one year.

I had the privilege of attending a Jean Pierre Rampal concert twice!

I had the opportunity and pleasure of meeting Julius Baker who was another world renown Flute player at this time and I was given the chance to help him out as he was scheduled to perform that evening at a large Concert and the page turner for his pianist fell sick. I turned pages at the piano that evening for him at his Concert! I will never forget how that felt! Nervous NOT ME! I was petrified!

Improvising is one of my best abilities, I can play “by ear” in multiple venues.

I played in a Flute Choir for many years in Puyallup with Grace Moe. I played about 3 seasons for the Tacoma Dance Theatre Northwest Ballet. For about one year I took professional lessons from a very talented flutest Named Darren Thaves in Tacoma, who played in the Symphony, I learned a lot from him!

I have performed a few times with piano accompaniment; my favorite piece being “Mozart Concerto in D Major ”  I and my very good pianist friend Doug Skelly also performed a live musical piece at our Churches Talent Night that we just made up live on the stage! We received a standing ovation!

I have played Flute on my Church Worship Team “Evergreen Foursquare of Auburn for many years, we play contemporary Christian songs.
