Eric L.

Oviedo, FL

About Eric

Eric 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 ma
ke 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.

Eric 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 experience includes performances with rock groups, stage bands, folk groups, classical ensembles, jazz combos, Broadway shows, operas, solo recitals, and concerto appearances. Eric has appeared hundreds 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 being 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.

Although he enjoys performing, Eric considers teaching music to be highly gratifying. The importance of giving students a good foundation with the proper technique and performance skills cannot be underestimated. When a student can play a song from beginning to end with style and confidence you know you've given them a gift that will offer them enjoyment for the rest of their lives.

I found Eric on the Take Lessons website and he was the perfect choice for adult beginner mandolin lessons. He took my previous music experience into account and made my lessons enjoyable and educational. He helped me pick music for the musical styles I was interested in , as well as teaching me about music theory. Whatever musical talent level you are at, and any age, I highly recommend Eric Lesko. Thanks Eric! Lesli

I was super nervous when I went to my first lesson, but Damien was very reassuring and helpful. He asked a lot of questions to find out where I was at, and then from there he started teaching me. So far, I think he's a great teacher and will help me reach my goals.

Lily L.

Orlando, FL

I teach basic chords and help you to play those songs you've always wanted to play - all in a laid back and casual environment! I've been playing ukulele since 2012 and love to share my love of this instrument and my love of music with others.

About Lily

Hello!

I am a 2014 graduate of the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Development and Education. I have completed 2 internships, both in 1st grade, then taught Kindergarten in Seminole county Schools for one year and have since discovered my love for teaching in one-on-one situations. I believe that building relationships is an important and integral part of effective teaching, and the learning stems from that.

I have a passion for music, and have been playing flute since 2003, piano since 1998, and guitar since 2006. I played the flute thr
oughout middle and high school, and I continue playing for weddings, holiday performances, etc. to this day. I have consistently auditioned for All-County performances all throughout middle and high school with flute, and have received top positions. I have also been playing piano since 1998, taken piano lessons for 7 years, and performed in several recitals. I also have taught myself guitar and ukulele and have performed in a few festivals and coffee shops around Orlando.

I've also enjoyed venturing into the world of graphic/web design, and run my own tiny little design business at lilyliseno.com. I taught myself how to do some basic coding using HTML and CSS, and how to use adobe photoshop and illustrator to create website designs, social media graphics, logos, flyers, and t-shirt designs.

**Lesson Details**

My teaching style is laid back and casual in nature. I believe the most productive learning comes through relationships, trust, and fun!

Lela G.

Deland, FL

I have been playing ukulele for four years.

About Lela

QUALIFICATIONS:
MUSIC AND EDUCATION:
I am 24 years old and have recently finished school for my degree in Music Therapy and recently completed my 900 hour (6 month) internship at a behavioral health hospital.
I have been musically involved for eleven years, gaining experience from many avenues including band, private lessons, and musical gigs. I taught music theory and ear training at an after school music and arts business for 1.5 years and worked with a variety of students ranging from 6 years old to twenty years old. As a music therapist, I am required to be proficient on my main instru
ment (flute) plus on guitar and piano. I am also required to be proficient in the creation and implementation of goals and objectives, people skills, and to have an empathetic, understanding, and positive approach in all I do. I believe these skills contribute greatly to the effectiveness of my teaching. I am also qualified and willing to teach adaptive lessons for students with all types of disabilities.

PSYCHOLOGY:
I have a minor in psychology and have always been interested in the subject which has lead me to much research of my own. I have completed a practicum at a behavioral health hospital and an internship at another behavioral health hospital. I have taken multiple psychology classes- a few being abnormal psychology, clinical and counseling psychology, and brain and behavior. I will also soon be pursuing a masters in mental health counseling.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE:
Education experience: I taught music theory for 1.5 years in Tallahassee, Florida. I am currently a certified substitute teacher in Volusia county Florida for elementary through high school and I teach flute sectionals at a local middle school. I am also a teachers aide in two kindergarten classrooms. This job requires me to teach students individually and in small groups. I also do music groups with the kindergarteners once a week. Prior to this I have been a regular dividend in a kindergarten classroom for a semester, have lead flute choir and flute sectionals, and have volunteered often in an elementary art classroom.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:
My teaching style is organized yet laid-back. I am sympathetic and positive in my approach. I am understanding of your busy schedules so am very flexible if you need to reschedule or move around your lesson time!
I have access to lesson books/textbooks and can make suggestions for you based on your needs and desires. If you are a beginning piano student you will need to purchase your own book. (It's about $6.00 on Amazon.)
Our first lessons will be based around assessing your strengths and weaknesses. From there I will create a schedule customized to your specific needs. Your input is important to me as I am always willing to be flexible based on your personal needs and preferences.
Learning is FUN so I will make sure you are enjoying the lessons as well as getting the most out of them that you can!

About Laurie

Hi =)

New Blog by Me on buying your first ukulele: http://takelessons.com/blog/buying-a-ukulele

I'm Laurie, a very passionate ukulele singer, guide, and artist since 2008. I honor each person's unique style and interest. I'm not teaching lessons just so people can perform, but so they can create a special bond with their instruments and canvases and their own style. We are all unique in how we create...so I want to watch that unfold. I'll go over all the basics and then we'll have fun! Each lesson will be a new experience and I will be allowing the student to guide and teach me ~ it's a
team effort!

I LOVE children and have a background teaching Music Together classes as well as nannying my niece who was born with special needs. Depending on the needs, I would love to make myself available as I feel music is the best therapy for all of us.

I also offer sound healing sessions, on this site it is called Music Therapy. I own a few therapeutic instruments ~ a singing bowl, a reverie harp (anyone can play), drums, shakers, and a native american flute. I like to let these sessions have a life of their own so I do not plan...however we will use all the instruments so the person can feel the differences that each sound gives them.

I am in a wheelchair so traveling to other homes can be an issue if it is hard for me to get inside. I prefer to meet in accessible areas, open my home, or do lessons online when I am traveling. I want to be as available to you as I possible can! I'm excited! HOORAY

Let's JAM and have FUN!

I am fortunate to have performed alongside Laurie at a local market in Downtown Orlando (Market at Mills 50). During this time I learned so much on how to perform and entertain. Laurie is a beacon of light and her presence is so heartfelt. I highly recommend booking at least ONE lesson with Laurie and you will quickly see how much she cares and how much VALUE she has to offer anyone wanting to grow :)

I bought my 9 year old son a ukulele on a whim. He had never picked up an instrument before. Laurie is so patient and fun and goes at his pace but continues to challenge him. In just a few short lessons, he has learned SO MUCH from her already and looks forward to his weekly lessons. I highly recommend her!!
