George Karayiannis (born April 13,1991) is a professional musician/guitarist, JTC Artist, composer and
guitar instructor based in Athens, Greece.
George first started teaching and playing professionally at the age of 20 with popular Pop and RnB artists (Tamta/Sakis Rouvas/Elena Paparizou/Stavento), counting hundreds of
performances in large capacity venues and T.V. aired shows.
At 24, with a high level of technical proficiency and live-gigging experience already under his belt, George began taking jazz guitar and harmony lessons from the Berklee College of Music graduate George Argiropoulos, which shaped his style, musical and teaching approach significantly.
He graduated in Music Technology and received the DipLCM Teaching Diploma from
London College of Music.
Since then, he began building his own unique guitar teaching method, combining the phrasing and technical elements of rock/metal with the sophistication and harmony-based approach of
jazz and fusion guitar playing mindset.
In 2018 George released his debut Instrumental Progressive Metal EP “Past.Present.We”,
under the project name of “Chasing Dots”.
During the same year, Chris from Tsakalis AudioWorks, approached George to take up guitar duties as a demonstrator for TheNammShow 2019 event, held in Anaheim, California.
At the time, George is working on a series of video lesson packages and his next Chasing Dots release, while maintaining a busy schedule gigging across Greece and actively teaching.
