Eric Lesko
comes from a family of musicians. He began guitar lessons at age five as the Beatles were invading the American music scene. Growing up in New Jersey, Eric performed in rock bands until becoming interested in classical guitar. With New York City only a short bus ride away, he spent as much time as possible in the city, studying guitar with Russian born Classical Guitarist, Dr. Alexander Bellow, and  Jazz Legend "Bucky" Pizzarelli. During this time he attended recitals of such notables as Andre Segovia, Julian Bream and John Williams. Being immersed in this musical scene inspired him to make music his life.

Eric earned a degree in Classical Guitar Performance from the Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford where he studied under the direction of guitar pedagogue, Richard Provost.  While at Hartt and shortly after, Eric performed in numerous Master Classes for internationally acclaimed artists such as Manuel Barrueco, Christopher Parkening, Oscar Ghiglia, Michael Lorimer, and Carlos Barbosa-Lima. 

Mr. Lesko has taught guitar at the college level for over twenty years teaching on the music faculties of University of Central Florida, Rollins College, Stetson University, Bethune Cookman College, Florida Southern College, and St. Leo College.

Eric's extensive performing experience includes anything from Weddings to Fine Dining, Solo Recitals to Concerto Soloist with the former Florida Symphony Orchestra. Eric has appeared hundreds of times at Disney and Sea World as well as other venues around Central Florida.

Throughout the years he has had many unique experiences while performing. One of his favorites was having the opportunity to play the MASH theme song for Alan Alda as well as other stars in attendance at a cast party for the show, "Win, Lose or Draw" at EPCOT Center.
