Lee Man Hon Marco was born in Hong Kong. He studied double bass with the famous double-bassist Mr Edmond Cheng since he was 12 years old. He entered the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts in 2017 to study with Mr Zong Xiaoqian, the former principal of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. While studying at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, Lee participated in performances with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and the Hong Kong Sinfonietta. In 2018, he was honoured to be selected to perform at the Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam and studied and performed with Mr Dominic Seldis, the principal double-bassist of the orchestra.

After graduating from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts in 2021, Lee won the ABRSM Scholarship and went to the Royal Academy of Music to enrol in the Master of Music program, majoring in double bass and minoring in conducting. Lee followed Prof. Graham Mitchell, the current dean of the string department of the Royal Academy of Music, Prof. Dominic Seldis, the principal double-bassist of Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest, and Tom Goodman, the double-bassist of the London Symphony Orchestra, and completed the master's program in 2023. During his stay in the UK, Lee played in London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and London Philharmonic Orchestra, and won the first runner-up in the 2021 London Symphony Orchestra Concerto Competition. He has studied with many musicians in different orchestras, including those from the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Singapore Philharmonic Orchestra, and BBC Radio Philharmonic Orchestra.

Lee Man Hon Marco is currently a double bass player in the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra and an educator.
