Spiros is my guitar instructor for over a year now, I’m so happy to be learning with such an amazing Guitar master 😊.
Not only did I learn how to play, he actually thought me how to read music and work on my vocals.
I couldn’t be happier 😃.
I absolutely recommend to take him as your teacher, you will not regret it!

Personable, knowledgeable, focused, and fun. I'm confident I'll be able to convey the key things I want to on my imminent trip to Greece.

Blues Guitar · In studio

I started taking weekly electric guitar lessons with Mr. Soukis at his Times Square studio, after watching many videos of him rockin' the blues at various venues in New York City. He is one of those rare teachers who is not only knowledgeable, but also able to share the knowledge with his students in a comfortable and relaxing manner. I have always been afraid of the guitar but the man has cured my guitar phobia. He has made learning the guitar approachable and fun!!

Spiros is great! I've been taking bass lessons from him for a couple of years now and thanks to him, I can actually play now! He's a good teacher, teaching both elements of theory and also how to get the "feel" of music, and he's also fun to be around. I can say that without his lessons and the music he's sent me, I would not be nearly as good as I am today, nor as motivated to learn more.
