“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.”
Praised for the “spiritual heights, the drama, the tension” of his music “immersing the listener into a world of sound” (The National Herald, NYC), composer Aris Antoniades creates works for everything from Symphony Orchestras to Jazz Big Bands, and has written/arranged for eight-times Grammy nominee Bobby Sanabria, the National Radio Symphony Orchestra of Greece (ERT), and X-Factor (Greece) judge George Theofanous.
