Konstantinos Galanis.

Konstantinos Galanis was born and raised in Athens. He started his piano studies when he was 7 years old at the National Conservatory. At the age of 26, he obtained the piano Diploma with Honours and an Outstanding Performance Award. Before this, he had a 5-year interval from his piano studies, because of a serious injury in his left hand. During this break he was trained as a piano tuner.

He continued his studies at Leipzig in Germany, with Professor Marcus Thomas, enriching his repertoire intensively for three years. In 2011, he graduated with a master’s degree in Music and a first prize for Excellent Performance.

He has received piano Masterclasses from the teachers: Marios Papadopoulos, Oxana Yablonskaya, Jean Francois Pommier, Jean Francois Heisser, Gunther Anger, Winfried Appel, Konstanze Eickhorst, Giacomo Battarino and George Chatzinikos.

He worked and lectured as a piano teacher at University of Liverpool and Edge Hill University in the United Kingdom. He also performed as a concert pianist and in Baroque trios and quartets all around Europe.

He was involved in academic research, cooperating with Dr. Paul Ziolo (Psychology/Psychohistorian) and Prof. Robert Anthony Duncan Shorrocks (Music performance). His main academic research focus is on the following subjects:
