About Spiros S.

Hello and Welcome to the right place where you will learn and enhance your knowledge as a musician on Guitar,Bass,Bouzouki and Music Theory or your Greek Language skills in modern Greek.

I am a Conservatory trained Guitar player singer songwriter with a
Music Theory-Harmony degree from the Athens Conservatory
(Athens -Greece) and A Degree in Musicology from Stockholm`s (Sweden) University.

I have studied Jazz Guitar in Stockholm and in Athens.

I have been teaching guitar for many years and I have had many happy and satisfied students, some of them are now professional musicians.

All of my students love my lessons and benefit greatly from them because I love to watch them making progress and becoming better with each lesson.

After the first lesson I realize what the student wants to achieve and I am making a plan to help him/her get there enjoying every step on the way .

Every lesson includes Music Theory ,which the student learns while playing the songs they like while introducing them to scales ,rhythm and lead playing, ear training and how to play and jam with others.

I have been playing regularly at BBKING`s in NYC from Jan. 2006 till 2018
performed at the Lincoln Center playing festivals in U.S.A and in Europe.

I consider myself a Blues-Rock specialist with a vast knowledge of the Blues, the British Blues and classic Rock.

My playing is influenced by the British masters such as
Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, David Gilmour, Robin Trower,
Rory Gallagher, The Rolling Stones,Led Zeppelin,Pink Floyd ,and American guitarists Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B.King,,The Allman Brothers Band and many others.
You can become the next one with my knowledge and experience to guide you!
I am looking forward to meeting you and having you as my student!

Spiros has been an ideal teacher for me, he has a wealth of experience to draw from and has a natural nack for teaching (Im an absolute beginner).
His teaching method gets you playing fast and doesn't skimp on theory and musicality - he doesn't simply have you learn tabs and songs, this was a huge plus for me. Highly recommend him.

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.

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.
