All About

That's all about drummers can think about. They live, eat and breathe percussion. They wake up in the morning tapping to the music and spend their days thinking about a certain beat or drum fill.


Were there any influences that were decisive positive or negative? I started playing drums at the age of 9 piano at 18 and being a self-taught musician I made several mistakes. On the other hand, I cultivated my discipline in order to fill as much as I can the void of a professor. From then until today I do not stop the study and the search for a 'new musical ground'. Where I think I'm going to relax, there's a new musician or one of those I admire and it gives me new motivation.
I am influenced by people I see that have a great passion for music and nothing stops them from learning and becoming better at it. There are many Greek and foreign musicians who influence me, each in his own way.
