I am devoted to music performance, education and production. All approaches are priceless to the wide understanding of music.
I have studied classical traditions of performance and harmony and have specialised in Jazz performance and improvisation.

I have taught children and adults in Los Angeles, Greece and London.
My focus is on Jazz improvisation (incl. blues, funk etc), but have also successfully taught classical performance.

My teaching approach varies depending on the students aspirations, expectations and needs.
My proposition is that jazz is best learned in the traditional way, that is by ear. Learning to play by ear and then acquiring the reading and analytical skills, is decisive in the development as an improviser.

A more academic schedule can be followed if the necessary listening skills are present, or if there are specific ambitions such as applying to a music school.
