Clarence Lockhart Partee (born Concord, North Carolina January 20, 1864, died Manhattan, New York April 17, 1915) was an American composer and arranger and music publisher. He was also founder, editor and publisher of The Cadenza magazine, and devoted his life to teaching and advancing the banjo, mandolin and guitar, arranging more than 150 works for these three instruments. He was a charter member of the American Guild of Banjoists, Mandolinists & Guitarists, now two separate organizations, the American Guild of Music and the Fretted Instrument Guild of America .
Partee took up the banjo as a profession after his parents died before he was 14, and he moved to Chicago to pursue that goal. In 1881 he began an office manager for the J. B. Schall banjo company, giving banjo lessons and meeting prominent banjo players of the time, including E. M. Hall. He also began studying the guitar and the mandolin.
He became a soloist performer, traveling the country and teaching the banjo, guitar and mandolin. He also composed music and became a music publisher. Places he traveled included Chicago, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Omaha and Kansas City.
