Eric legato is a musical entrepreneur with passion for teaching students young and old! His musical knowledge and experience crosses genres, from rock - to blues, broadway, or Mozart. Eric embraces music in all of its forms, and has dedicated himself to lifelong learning and teaching of the musical arts.
Strumming his first guitar at age six, and studying music ever since, Eric played cello and guitar throughout school in jazz band, symphonic orchestra, string quartets, youth orchestras and competitive festivals (NYSSMA). He continued to study performance, conducting, music theory and composition into college and graduated from Oswego University of New York with a bachelor’s degree in arts (BA), specializing in music performance.
Eric loves performing and sharing the stage with others and is a regular with the band on cello for singer/songwriter Jesse Terry when he plays locally.
When Eric isn't teaching you can find him spending time with his family, playing with his dog, cheering on students at the ball field, playing a round of golf or enjoying a fun video game (Legend of Zelda is his favorite!)
Eric runs our band workshops and teaches cello, guitar, bass, ukulele, and beginning/intermediate drums. He is available for lessons weekdays and saturdays.
