About Me

I am a Greek-born guitarist and arranger with extensive experience across a variety of music genres. My western music studies together with the music of my middle-eastern roots have brought me close to different musical styles since an early age. This background of classical, pop, folk and world music has led me to the idea of blending and combining all these styles.

Having studied classical guitar at the Municipal Conservatoire of Thessaloniki, the Ionian University of Greece and the Mozarteum in Salzburg, I began performing professionally at the age of 16. My appearances include concerts as a classical guitarist as well as performances as a session guitarist with bands and orchestras.

Career Highlights - Invited to join an orchestra as a soloist at the age of 16. - Prize-winner in multiple international competitions. - Holder of four titles in guitar performance from major European universities. - Performance as a soloist with the “Athens Camerata” for HRH Princess Irene of Spain. - Appearances in prestigious venues such as the Athens Concert Hall “Megaron” and the St. Martin-in- the-Fields, London. - Interviewed repeatedly by the Hellenic National Radio and the BBC.

Between 2001 and 2011, I toured extensively in Europe, USA and Middle East and have performed as a classical guitarist (solo and in ensembles) as well as being a leading guitarist in pop, folk and contemporary bands. My love for the guitar and my wish to present new musical experiences to my audiences caused me to look for ways to broaden its repertoire and help the instrument to develop. Since 2008 I have been making my own transcriptions for the guitar of works by composers of the wider musical repertoire. My arrangements include works of different styles and genres for solo guitar as well as for ensembles.

I am an independent recording artist and music producer. I have released three CD albums of music for solo guitar. At present, I am working on a fourth album which will include his own compositions.

Together with performing, I devote time to teaching. Living in Bristol, UK at present, I teach a number of promising students. Being a fan of technology, I also teach students all around the world through Skype.

I play with guitars by Greg Smallman (classical), Felipe Conde (flamenco), Godin / Fender / Gibson / D'angelico (jazz/electric).

    I would simply like to say that Andreas is by far the best guitar teacher I have ever had. I have been playing for almost 25 years – I played fairly seriously to the age of about 18 and then really picked it up again a year ago age 32. The progress i have made has been fantastic. My playing is infinitely better and technically there is no comparison to my playing of only a year ago. Andreas is technically an absolutely amazing guitarist, but he also plays and teaches with incredible musicality and passion. I have tried many teachers around the country, and also in Bristol itself, and I have to say that Andreas is an infinitely better guitarist and teacher than any of them. My future aim is to get my playing to a professional standard. I have a very long way to go to achieve this but feel confident and secure that, with Andreas’s help and a lot of hard work from me; I will get there. Anyone considering guitar lessons MUST choose Andreas. He is simply the best.

    Combines expert knowledge with patience! Andreas combines expert knowledge of theory and technique with a key ingredient for any teacher.. patience! He is able to cater for all grades (or in my case no grade at all) and tailors his approach to the student's abilities. He also has a broad knowledge of acoustical musical styles and has a wealth of knowledge on a Greek /Near eastern styles and modes which is an added bonus for those looking to expand their repertoire. A performing artist himself, you can see him live yourself to see what you are getting! Recommended!

    No reservations! I have received ukulele tuition from Andreas for several months as a complete beginner. I have in addition attended two of his excellent and enjoyable Guitar concerts in the City of Bristol. His own musical standard of playing and performance is clearly excellent, and his method of teaching is conducive to the good progress I believe I am making. Now in retirement, I have appreciated in particular his modest approach and now enjoy him accompanying and "joining in" to complement my efforts in learning new pieces. Alan Beake.

    Gifted, professional, relaxed and inspiring! Andreas is a highly gifted musician and teacher. He is professional in his approach but also friendly, relaxed and inspiring. I contacted Andreas to ask him to teach a brain injured individual. Andreas took this in his stride and quickly worked out how to create the ideal learning environment. Andreas can adapt to a wide range of styles and is skilled at pinpointing the key issues to enable fast progress. He has a hands-on approach, helpfully demonstrating technique on his own guitar or sometimes improvising along side you as you play, which is not only sounds amazing but helps you get used to playing with others...Very highly recommended.
