Do not wait for May) he wrote him self in a history of Slovenian pop songs. His spot in musical history he earned with versatilely creativeness, which derived from the love of music.
He finished high school as instrumentalist – clarinetist, but he marks this time as his youthful misconception. At the dance orchestra, he played saxophone, but he later returned to his instrument – piano. In a time of the silent movie, he played a piano at projections of the movie, which was a great pleasure to him. In that time people said, let’s go listen to Lesjak, and maybe some, let’s go watch the movie.
