Hello there, I am Nikolas!
I am an experienced 20-year old drummer with more than 300 gigs in my resume (Greece/Manchester/Edinburgh) I usually have amateur drummers as students. My mindset is to make my students better all-around musicians, and then better drummers!
I am a 3rd-year music student at the University of Salford. I have a 2-year experience on 1-1 drum lessons (Manchester/Athens), with more than 15 students.
Greek students: All 10 of my previous greek students have passed their National conservatory of Greece drum exams.
UK students: 3 of my Uk students have passed their rockschool performance exams.
Nikolas Kallithrakas was born in Athens, Greece and he is 20 years old.
The moment he had his first drum lesson at the age of nine, he knew he was destined to be a drummer.
He dedicated himself to continuously improving his music skills, taking exams at the National Conservatory of Athens and at 14 years old he started Piano lessons in his bid to become an all-rounded musician. By 18, Nikolas had also completed his Rockschool exams, with Distinction, and had been awarded three Drumming scholarships. Despite his young age, Nikolas has a rich experience of live performances and genres. Since 2011, he has taken to the stage at a wide range of gigs and festivals including Schoolwave, Athens school festival, and the Nakas Band Festival. He was the founding member and Drummer for “Black Stars” - Rock/Pop Band and Drummer for “Bazzinga” - Heavy Rock Band, which released their debut EP “This is now” in 2016.
He has also collaborated with several well-known artists as a session drummer, such as Dimitra Galani, George Xyndas, Ioannis Kourtis, Vangelis Kakoulakis, Georgina Jackson He is currently studying Popular Music and Recording at the University of Salford (Manchester, UK), for which he was awarded a scholarship in 2018.
