About me

A few words about me

GeorgE Alevrofas

I am a guitarist who thrives from teaching others whatever they need in order to successfully achieve their musical goals. I teach a broad range of styles and techniques, while covering all the important aspects of learning how to play and understand music, which include: music theory and its application, fundamental rhythms, ear-training, chord identification, listening techniques, and most importantly, the “right” way to practice.

Guitar is my ultimate passion in life, and I want to help you reach your goals on the instrument with all the knowledge I have to offer.
