“With all my students we explore music and its context by tapping into music theory, history, and musicianship sessions. With my composition students in particular, my goal is to help them develop their writing skills — and their own style — while learning from the great masters of the past. We are always looking for the key that unlocks the magic in a work of art.”

He has written/arranged for eight-times Grammy nominee Bobby Sanabria, the National Radio Symphony Orchestra of Greece (ERT), twenty-eight-time gold and platinum album vocalist (IFPI Greece) Alkistis Protopsalti, composer and pianist Stefanos Korkolis, as well as Michalis Hatzigiannis, George Perris, and X-Factor (Greece) judges George Theofanous and Mariza Rizou.

What Students Say
"Aris is just fantastic! You could be a beginner or a professional, he makes it easy for everybody. His in-depth knowledge of various styles of music, the entertainment industry, and the arts in general, truly makes him stand out."
"I was fortunate enough to have Aris as my tutor while in college. He always found innovative ways to make advanced music concepts seem comprehensible and easy."
"For me personally, Aris Antoniades has not only been an exceptional music theory teacher, but also a mentor. With his guidance and support, I was able to receive a scholarship to attend my dream school. Except from being an incredibly insightful, passionate musician, he approaches teaching in a very unique way, always ensuring that each and every one of his students is learning effectively. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone thinking of starting music lessons."
"Aris is a true master of his craft. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their orchestration skills or gain a deeper understanding of orchestration. His expertise and teaching style make for a truly valuable learning experience."
"During the two years that I studied with Aris, I went from knowing little to nothing about composition to getting accepted with a generous scholarship to my dream school. Aside from teaching me a great deal about the art of composing, Aris also instilled within me a curiosity and love of learning through his thorough knowledge of a wide variety of topics. I am to the highest degree grateful for how Aris has helped me develop as both a musician and a polymath over these past two years and I'll sorely miss having lessons with him."
