Christos is very knowledgeable and my son enjoys discovering with him new genres of music that he hasn't learnt before, new scales/theory, as well as new metal/rock songs which are his first love. Christos uses Skype very efficiently. At the start we weren't sure that online lessons will work but we gave it a shot and actually we're very impressed with the amount of work that Christos does with my son every week and having all the instructions and tracks in the Skype chat box helps a lot for the practising between the lessons.
