WHAT MY STUDENTS SAY...
“Ioannis has created a multi-lateral and exceptionally well structured educational material, including all modern sophisticated techniques and expression techniques, fingerboard language, up to music technology and ear training. Ioannis possesses in-depth knowledge of music and improvisation theory, as well as the ability to analyze the most outstanding guitarists’ styles and techniques. He has an amazing collection of studying material, which is provided to the student in both electronic and hard copy. Ioannis is very capable of maintaining the student’s motivation high as a kite, as well as very able to identify and pinpoint the success mechanisms of the music industry on the whole. What is more, his guidance is unique for optimal preparation for music university entrance exams (RGT, GIT, etc). Ioannis is extremely helpful to the goal-setting and the design of the most effective practice routine for each student depending on his/her personal style. Vast range of custom-made exercises especially designed and targeted for each student’s needs.”
“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 a 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.”
– JIM NASSIOS
“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 in the easiest way!! 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.”
“Ι started having lessons with Ioannis 3 years ago as I was looking for a professional coach to help me master contemporary electric guitar. Ioannis’ guitar coaching is accurately tailor-made to my own musical needs and desires and he continues to inspire me to get better day by day. I am really proud to be his student and am very grateful for the amazing opportunity to learn by a true virtuoso and the one and only ‘Coach of the Guitar Champions!’”

“I heard about Ioannis many years ago. I was impressed by his unique biography, with all the studies and co-operation, with almost every single major name 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 he helped me build my music industry network. Now, we collaborate on numerous musical projects, but most of all he is an excellent friend, always eager to help and guide. I owe him a lot, not only career-wise but also personally. 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.”

“Through all the years of my apprenticeship, not only as a guitarist, but as a musician in general, I’ve crossed paths with many exceptional teachers such as Ioannis and the truth is that there are many that can teach you how to play the guitar efficiently. But the attribute that makes him stand out and makes me proud to call myself his student after almost 2 years of collaboration, is that he can guide you thoroughly not only to the way of achieving the mastery of the instrument itself but to the way of being an utterly well-rounded professional, since he himself is at that level.”

“I have been studying Electric guitar with Ioannis for 4 years now, and I am continuously impressed by his extremely well-rounded knowledge of the instrument in all of its aspects! His teaching technique focuses on identifying the student’s weak points and correcting them in the fastest and most efficient way. His unique style of playing and virtuosity make Ioannis one of the best contemporary guitar coaches!”
– JIM SKORDILIS
“Ioannis is an exceptional coach and a true virtuoso of the guitar. During the 4 years I have been studying with him, he has always been able to show me the most efficient ways to break down and master every aspect of the electric guitar. It is from him that I have learned one of the most important lessons that a musician keeps evolving throughout his entire life. A truly great contemporary guitarist, with amazing improvisational skills – he is definitely one of my biggest influences.”
