Personal Description:

I am a young freelance musician from Cyprus based in Glasgow, UK. In the past I was the principal tuba player of the Cyprus Youth Symphony orchestra a member of the Cyprus military band.I have a Bmus performance degree with honors from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and I am now doing a Master's degree on tuba performance. Since then I have collaborated and performed with leading orchestras in Scotland and abroad, such as BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet and Cyprus Symphony Orchestra.

I also have a particular interest in chamber music. I'm a member of Aura brass and Spitha brass quintet for a few years now, with which we do various concerts across the United Kingdom and organize brass workshops for schools. As a solo player I have performed in various occasions in the Royal Conservatoire. In 2019 I have performed the Vaughan Williams Tuba Concerto with the Edinburgh Youth Orchestra and in 2020, I have won the Governor's brass solo recital competition.

Other than my classical education I always had an interest in other music genres. I also play guitar and sing, having occasional gigs and concerts every now and then. In this journey I had some very inspiring teachers who without their teaching methods and support I wouldn't be where I'm today. For that reason I want to pass my experiences and passion for music to my students at every level.

Tutoring Experience:

I am collaborating with Cyprus Youth Symphony Orchestra as brass teacher for the past few years, varying from one to one lessons to larger ensemble lessons. Since then, I worked with the wind section of ''El Systema'' Cyprus and gave many brass workshop at primary schools and elementary schools across United Kingdom. I also give private lesson for students of every level. If face to face lessons are not an option, online teaching and mentoring is available.

Tutoring Approach:

First of all, I always arrange a free (online) meeting to meet and discuss with the student what do they want from their lessons and what they want to achieve. Then I tailor the lessons and time together to each student needs. Even though I encourage my students to aim high, the lessons are friendly, approachable and most of all fun. Furthermore I have access to a variety of online sources (repertoire, technique books, etudes etc)

For earlier stages the main goal is to improve musical awareness and build an all-round technical foundation. For higher level is to focus on music details that will elevate the playing. I try as much as I can to make the students to have a music opinion and taste for themselves, be their own teacher in a way. As Socrates once said “I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.”
