About Panagiotis

My name is Panagiotis and I am a guitar teacher/player. I have two bachelor degrees: Classical Guitar (Philippos Nakas Conservatory), Jazz&Pop Guitar (HKU Utrecht Conservatory). I have been teaching in music schools and giving individual lessons for the last 14 years. In 2017 I moved to Utrecht to continue my studies in jazz guitar at the Utrecht Conservatory and explore the Dutch music scene.I teach electric, acoustic, classical guitar and music theory. Besides the basic technique and theory knowledge, which Ι make sure to provide to each of my students , I individually prepare their study line, according to their taste and abilities. My goal is to help my students to find their own musicality and reveal their inner voice by giving them the most appropriate tools. Besides teaching I have two bands which I give lots of concerts with , at several venues and festivals.

Excellent Guitar Teacher!

Excellent guitar teacher with vast musical theory knowledge. I have been taking lessons for 2 years now and could not be happier for choosing Panagiotis. Highly recommended!

Passionate Musician!

Panos is an excellent and passionate musician, with a broad background, and a really nice guy. I totally recommend him as a teacher!

Guitar is their favourite Activity!

Panagiotis is an amazing teacher! My two kids (8 and 10) started taking lessons with him just a while ago and they can already play music. It has become their favorite activity and they always get excited at the day of the lesson! I totally recommend him as a teacher!

Knowledgable Guitar Instructor!

Knowledgeable instructor, quite a bit of theory, mixed with practical application, so far I have really enjoyed my lessons.

Positive Encouragement

From day 1 Panagiotis has tailored my lessons to my personal music tastes which makes learning the instrument all the more enjoyable. His lessons allow me to learn songs to build up my repertoire as well as providing some more challenging songs to push my technique and skills. Although I did not specifically start lessons with the intention of learning any music theory Panagiotis has a way of making theory accessible to everyone and I now begin to actually enjoy learning it, which helps support what I do on the instrument. Panagiotis is clam, patient and has an approachable manner and is very supportive throughout the lessons and provides lots of positive encouragement.

Theory and Nuances of Jazz Guitar

I have been following lessons with Panagiotis since september 2020 and it's been great. I've played guitar for quite a while now, but have been wanting to get into jazz guitar a lot more. Panagiotis has a lot of knowledge about both music theory as well as putting feeling/emotion into your playing. Also, his way of teaching is very easygoing with plenty of room for conversation and students' own contributions, so it has helped me a lot to become even more comfortable with my instrument as well as to understand the underlying theory and nuances of jazz guitar. Would definitely recommend him as a guitar teacher!

Elke gitaarles nieuwe informatie!

Panagiotis heeft een heel goed gevoel voor hoe iemand moet ontwikkelen in zijn of haar spel en weet je altijd uit te dagen om je verder te ontwikkelen. Iedere les ga je weg met met extra informatie over iets nieuws of nieuwe ideeen. Verder wordt alles ook op een manier uitgelegd zodat iets makkelijk is om te snappen en later toe te kunnen voegen aan je eigen spel waardoor alles interessant en leuk is.

Always fun Guitar Classes!

I have been taking lessons from Panagiotis for over a year now, and I find myself improving much faster than I initially thought I would. He is an excellent teacher with a grasp of both the theoretical and practical side of guitar playing. On top of that, the classes are always fun and I learn something new every time!

Weekly Guitar Lessons

I have been having weekly guitar lessons with Panagiotis for almost two years now, and I could not be happier. Our main focus is jazz, but we also deal with other genres. He is a fantastic guitar player and qualified teacher: professional, articulate, and very knowledgeable. Panagiotis has helped me to improved my guitar technique, but also how to be more musical in a broader sense.

Gericht op wat ik wil leren!

Ik heb nu ruim een half jaar les van Panagiotis. Naast dat hij uiteraard een hele goede gitaarspeler is, is hij ook een fijn persoon om les van te krijgen. De lessen zijn altijd leuk en gericht op wat ik wil leren, en tegelijkertijd daagt hij me ook uit om dingen te doen die ik spannend vind. Ik had nooit gedacht dat ik zo snel best moeilijke stukken kon leren fingerpicken, ik heb echt enorm veel progressie gemaakt sinds ik bij hem les heb.
