With my love for education, I work with the Great School of Markos. Not out of livelihood, but out of an inner need based on a basic belief that knowledge is transmitted and they are not advertised . With prudence, responsibility and vision I am among great people like the “Horde & Organ” team to offer to anyone who wants to learn the secrets and art of Music Technology. I wish this school to be a center of technology and culture in the wider area of the Cyclades.
