This is what the students say. These are 100% real reviews from real students in their exact words.
“Yiannis is not only an amazing and accomplished musician he is also a great guitar teacher! Yiannis has the unique ability to share his musical knowledge in an easy and understandable way. During our lessons Yiannis tries to cover every aspect of guitar technique and music theory and his focus on detail has made me a much better guitar player. He is also a very funny and great person to be around!”
“I was a self-taught guitarist for ten years prior to starting my first lessons with Yannis. Within a few lessons Yiannis identified all those accumulating inconsistencies in my playing and created a tailored programme for my needs. My technique has since improved massively and I feel ready to record my first album. Moreover, Yiannis’s unique methodology of teaching music theory has been a revelation. Within a few months of familiarising myself with the material my understanding of music theory (which was almost none at that point), alongside my capability to improvise (which was underdeveloped to say the least) have improved beyond my expectations. Yiannis is a patient, yet very passionate and thoughtful artist and instructor and I wholeheartedly recommend him to guitarists of all levels.” Antonis, Cambridge, United Kingdom
“From my first lesson, Yiannis was able to pinpoint weaknesses in my techniques. With his one-on-one lessons, Yiannis expanded my improvisational technique, polished my picking and increased my beats per minute by 100%. Personable and patient, he gives clear instruction of music theory that makes this difficult subject easy to understand. Yiannis’ teaching provides guidance for all aspects in a musician’s life. On a personal note, in the year I have been under his tutelage, the instruction he has provided me has given me superlative confidence. I am now an in demand hired gun in my local community. Thank you Yiannis!”
“I have been a long time student of Yiannis. Started regular lessons back in August 2015 and never looked back. Not only it has since become an important part of my life, but also something I have realised, has been missing quite a bit before. Over the years of work, Yiannis has shown his best as a great, patient, well educated teacher, and a friend, thoroughly explaining all the nuances, motivating along the hard way. Still, after going through the mountains of knowledge and excersies, he finds something new to work on. Every lesson is a mini journey. It is given in a way that is never boring, keeps it chill and cozy. He always pays good attention to the details, but never picky. I appreciate his advise in related topics too – as a working musician he has helped me to clarify many questions related to the music industry from the proffessional point. Yiannis is always there to help and ready for the lesson, even though we all have our life situations happening from time to time. Keep the great work, my friend!”
“I am happy to take guitar lessons with yiannis, I love his honesty when something is not good or musical enough. His tips to improve something and the structure of his lessons are a treasure chest of surprises. I studied classical guitar but Yiannis’ knowledge has extended my vision to an unimaginable world of what can be done with the guitar and the music. He is also a super cool and humble man.”
“Yiannis is a very skillful guitarist and an amazing teacher. He combines his own performance and learning experiences along with his academic background to create a great example of a music teacher. His analytical approach, professional way of communication, perfection to detail and commitment to the personal development of the his student, are hard-to-find and precious skills. Worth-mentioning also that the Skype lesson experience provided by Yiannis is also excellent with top-notch equipment, maintaining intact the feeling and proximity of a private lesson.”
“I’ve had the privilege of working with Yiannis for about a year and a half. When I started I was a complete beginner that didn’t know a thing about playing guitar. Yiannis has been nothing but encouraging and always pushed me to do the best I can. At this point I can say I am beyond happy with my playing skills and my knowledge of music theory on top of that. I look forward to every lesson and he always keeps it fun and productive at the same time. If you have been considering getting into playing the guitar and are looking for a great instructor, I recommend Yiannis over anyone else!”
“For the last 5-7 years I had reached a plateau, being unable to materially develop my playing. That was until I started lessons with Yiannis who has helped me identify limitations in my technique and in my musical approach, giving me the tools I needed to expand. Yiannis is really cool, and we are always having a blast during our lessons. Our lessons give me the guidance I need to become a better guitar player.”
“Yiannis can help you develop your guitar playing and take it to a higher level.
Although I was a little hesitant on how it would be possible to take guitar lessons via the internet with just a webcam, Yiannis has made it so it’s easy to communicate with his camera and sound setup which is really good, so good that it almost feels like there’s no distance between us. It’s actually more comfortable since you can sit at home where you’re more relaxed, with your guitars and equipment and waste no time with transportation for each lesson, so it changed my mind on how lessons should be.
In general, he’s a super nice guy, a fun person to chat with, but above all he is excellent at grasping your needs as a guitar player both in technique and theory and can help you improve, but without being too strict or demanding. He might look like he’s mainly a shredder, but he’s actually well versed in a wide variety of styles and guitar techniques, so he helped me understand and expand on a variety of music concepts like funk and fusion but in a very easy to comprehend way.
All in all, lessons with Yiannis helped me push my limits and achieve to express what I was listening in my head via my guitar.”
“Yiannis is one of the best guitarists in the world. As a teacher he is humble, down to earth, informative and attentive. In our first lesson, he immediately pinpointed a few of my problem areas and got me working on them. Since then my playing has improved beyond recognition with improved speed, clarity and musical ability, all thanks to his guidance. On top learning, I always look forward to catching up and having a chat. He is a genuine and lovely human. A true pleasure to know. Thanks mate”
“Lessons with Yiannis are incredible! Even though it’s online, the quality is amazing. Yiannis is both an amazing musician and an excellent teacher, able to pinpoint your weaknesses and help you overcome them with very accurate observations, which he explains in a way that is really understandable. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn the guitar and is hesitant, to have a lesson with Yiannis, for he will make you love the instrument even more, discover your true potential and overcome yourself!”
“I chose Yiannis as my electric guitar teacher since he is very structured when teaching, both technically and musically speaking. I think Yiannis has a very clear way of understanding and teaching music theory as well and how all this is applied to the guitar. I have been learning with him for approx. 2 years and I can feel a huge improvement in my technique as well as the understanding of different topics that I didn’t have clear before. If you are considering taking lessons so I can highly recommend him as a teacher!”
