Hyunwoo Lee, born in 1994 and raised in South Korea, picked up guitar very late, at the age of 17. He began playing blues and fusion style by himself. Later he really got into the jazz music of artists such as Charlie Parker, Bud Powell and Coltrane and went to a private music academy where he took his first jazz lessons. At the age of 19, he moved to Maastricht, Netherlands to study jazz guitar with Joachim Schoenecker, Carlo Nardozza and Philipe Aerts. In Maastricht, he had many opportunities to play music around Europe both as a sideman and a project leader. He recently has finished his Bachelor degree in Maastricht and started his master studies in Hague, Netherlands, where he is currently having lessons with Maritjin van Iterson.
