About Me

My name is Panos Tsamouras and I was born in Athens in 1998. I am a guitarist, folk guitarist, composer and Film/Theatre composer. I graduated from the Department of Music Science & Art (University Of Macedonia) in 2021. The same year, I obtained my Classical guitar degree when I had the pleasure to present my own transcription of a Classical Ottoman semai by Nikolaki. Through these years, I have played in several music halls, restaurants, taverns and Festivals mainly in Athens and Thessaloniki. I have created two bands to perform my covers of Greek Folk music (Ninema band, Gidelim band) and many duets and trios who perform Rembetiko music. Moreover, I have composed music for 4 theatrical plays (Alkistis by Eurpidis, Stella, The appeal of Charm, Izutsu) and this year I started my postgraduate studies in Screen Scoring in Codarts where I work into composing music for films and TV. The highlight of my composing career though, is my participation in the Podcast sector of Thessaloniki International Film Festival in 2022 and 2023 for the podcasts I had composed music for.

Panos is a very good teacher!

Panos and I have been taking classical guitar lessons for the last few months. From the first lesson, I realized that besides being a qualified musician, he is also a very good teacher. As a teacher myself, I can identify some of the approaches he uses in the learning process and certain teaching methodology practices that he applies considering my musical knowledge and my needs. Specifically, Panos and I are learning rebetiko pieces on classical guitar. Each song we work on, he has taken care beforehand to adapt it to the way I play, as he writes the sheet music himself. At the same time, a new knowledge or phenomenon emerges through each song, as he explains the theory and practice behind each piece we work on. Also, one of the most important elements that makes Panos a good teacher is his personality. His cheerful disposition and smiling personality pleasantly predispose students to trust him and turn the lesson into a very enjoyable process. He is giving and communicative, he treats the student with respect and takes a sincere interest in his students' progress.
