"Efficiency is doing things right. Effectiveness is doing the right things."

This website's mission is to provide developing musicians the right tools and principles for them to develop quickly while enjoying the process.


My name is Prokopis Skordis. Here's a quick summary of my relationship with the wonderful art of music:

I started taking classical guitar lessons at the age of 10, way back in the late 20th century (1987 - good times). I continued on to take theory, harmony, ear training, solfege, and other boring lessons, until I graduated from the Greek National Conservatory with a diploma in classical guitar.

I was then fortunate enough to get a Fullbright Program scholarship which allowed me to enroll in Berklee College Of Music in 1997. I concentrated on electric guitar and also took classes in improvisation, composition, arranging, production, engineering, and more.

   I graduated "Summa Cum Laude" (which basically means "this guy is very good") in 2001, with a degree in Music Production and Engineering (although I now find teaching and playing way more fun).

   Since 2001 I have been living in Limassol, Cyprus, teaching music to students of all ages and levels, and taking part in various bands and projects playing guitar or electric bass.

   The last few years I have concentrated in developing new ways to teach (and learn) music more effectively. Since 2014 I have started the process of putting these methods into digital format. These are tried and tested effective methods, so expect more and more good stuff coming on this website :-)
