His participation in the 2010 Volterra Project Summer Guitar Institute in Tuscany, Italy, introduced him to Antigoni Goni and motivated him to continue his studies under her guidance at the Royal Conservatory in Brussels from 2011 to 2015. Nikos also studied historical music on Baroque and Romantic guitars with Dirk de Hertogh, and Contemporary music with Bart Boukaert. During that four year period he obtained a Bachelors and Masters Degree (Distinction) of Arts in Music.

Nikos has participated in masterclasses with highly acclaimed guitarists such as: Sergio Assad, Dusan Bogdanovic, Zoran Dukic, Elliot Fisk, Rene Izquierdo, Timo Korhonen, Elena Papandreou, Konrad Ragosnig, Raphaella Smits and Gohar Vardanyan.

In the summer of 2015 he participated once more in the Volterra Project thanks to a scholarship provided by the Institute for Culture and Education in Brussels and was active as an assistant to the organisation during the 2016 edition where he also performed in the concert series. 

Nikos is interested in extending the classical guitar repertoire through transcriptions of works for other instruments. His arrangement for two guitars of the orchestral work The Light by Phillip Glass was premiered in Brussels in 2015 and received great critical acclaim. 

Nikos plays a guitar by Antonio Marin Montero (Granada, Spain).
