George Sakellariou started to play guitar at an early age in his native Athens, Greece. His first teacher was his brother, a talented composer of popular music, and his formal musical training was at the Conservatory of Music in Athens. After graduating with highest honors, he was invited to further his studies with the renowned guitarist Andres Segovia after the great master heard him play. Upon completion of his studies at the age of 20, Mr. Sakellariou joined the faculty of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where he became chairman of the Guitar Department.
Mr. Sakellariou has performed around the world in concert halls from the Kennedy Center, and other major halls in the United States, to Singapore, Hong Kong, Turkey, Heidelberg, Rio de Janeiro, Bogota, Montevideo, Toronto, Calgary, Taipei, Osaka, and others. He has made many radio and television appearances including BBC, PBS and Radio France.
