    He was born in Volos in 1998 and at the age of 7 he took his first violin lessons with Neviana Gulceva. He continued his studies with the teacher of the Volos Municipal Conservatory Apostolis Mitras, under whose supervision he obtained his violin diploma in 2020 with a grade of 10 with honours. He also holds the Harmony Diploma, which he obtained in 2018 with a grade of excellent 10, under the supervision of the director and professor of the conservatory Andreas Mimaio. Since 2017, she started exploring the world of lyrical singing, under the guidance of conservatory’s monody teacher Sylvia Tsimbanakou. As a violinist, he has participated in student ensembles (Chameleons – under the teaching of Bernard Bettter, Youth Camerata of the Conservatory where he held the position of sextet – under the teaching of Themistocles Vagenas) and professional ensembles (Volos Symphony Orchestra, Larissa Symphony Orchestra).

    He has taken individual violin lessons with M. Chrysikopoulos, A. Papanikolaou, S. Strohmeier, A. Strikos, J. Kolinek, A. Grammatikopoulos, E. Frezi, A. Striko and P. Paroni. Also, as a singer, he has taken singing lessons with A. Striko and C. Fee.

    Important for his musical career was his contact with choral music, which began through Kostis Papazoglou.

In the years 2017 – 2020 he directed the choir of the Evangelical Church of Volos, with which he gave concerts in and outside the city. Now, at the encouragement of the artistic director of the Horto Festival, Nikos Adraskelas, he is preparing to continue his studies at the Conservatorium Maastricht, specializing in choir conducting.
