Percussion Studies

 
The cycle of studies is addressed both to professional as well as amateur musicians.
It consists of five levels, but it is easily adjusted to each musician’s needs.
It includes percussion groups from Greece, as well as the wider area of the Balkans and the Mediterranean. It also includes the African-American percussion group, known as Latin, as well as some West Africa percussions.

The selection of percussion was made so that the musician completing the cycle of studies will be ready to respond to any request, both in the event of live appearances as well as recordings.
Teaching is also based on the contemporary and timeless needs of the Greek and international music scene, with individual and group classes of musical ensembles.
