About the Author:

Ioannis started his musical studies on both the Flamenco & contemporary Electric guitar at the age of 12. He studied both styles privately, with numerous teachers and at the Contemporary Music program of the Philippos Nakas Conservatory in Athens, Greece. He continued his studies at the American College of Greece, from where he graduated with a Bachelor's degree in 1993. Subsequently, he relocated to Hollywood, CA and pursued extensive studies at the distinguished Musicians Institute, where he started working as an instructor after graduating at the top 1% of his class in 1996. He was subsequently accepted for Graduate studies in Flamenco guitar under the tutelage of the great flamenco guitar master Juan Serrano at the California State University, where he completed an MA in Guitar Performance, with emphasis in Concert Flamenco Guitar, graduating Magna cum Laude. Currently, he is working towards a Doctorate in Education, with emphasis on Music. In 1999, he acquired 1st place at the California Guitar Panorama, an international contest of Classical and Flamenco guitar. In 1999, he founded in collaboration with Philippos Nakas Conservatory in Athens the 1st Flamenco guitar department in Greece. In 2000, he became the 1st guitarist ever to present a solo guitar recital at the Greek National Opera House.
