What the Students Say

“Our first meeting with Ioannis was an absolutely thrilling experience. I had been playing the classical guitar for about 18 years and electric guitar just as a hobby. Ioannis was the one who helped me expand my knowledge and evolve my electrical guitar technique. His coaching helped me achieve my goal – to become a professional, raise the standard of my guitar playing, to deepen my knowledge of modern music, and to fill all the gaps I had in my musical knowledge. He’s an amazing teacher, with great communicability and a true master of his instrument but what truly makes him stand out from anybody else is that he really cares about his students and always insists on bringing out the best of their ability.”

“When I heard about Ioannis, I was impressed by his unique bio, all these studies, and collaborations, with several major artists in contemporary electric and flamenco guitar world. I trusted him and his experience and I wasn’t wrong. He coached me at my music studies and helped me network in the music industry. Now we collaborate on numerous musical projects but, most of all. he is a really good friend, always there to help and guide. I owe him a lot in my career and my life. I am proud to be one of the first graduates of Elite Guitar Coaching and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone that wishes to develop their guitar abilities, their music creation skills, and their understanding of the Music Business.”

“Everyone calls Ioannis a great guitar coach, a guitar virtuoso and more… But I think of him as a guru of the guitar. I’ve been studying with Ioannis for two years and I literally cannot believe the knowledge that I have obtained and how far I’ve come in this period of time. The most important thing that I have learned with Ioannis as my coach is to keep my goals clear and how to effectively reach them most easily!! I feel so grateful for this. Of course, his great playing full of passion, emotion, and impeccable technique was the first reason which made me want to start lessons with him.”
