Nikiforos Papanagis was born in Athens in 1988. Raised in a musical family in Greece, he was introduced to the piano at the age of 6 and guitar and vocals at the age of 13. At the age of 17 he realized that music was his main interest so he decided to start classical guitar and theory/harmony lessons. His love for jazz music lead him to apply for the Jazz Program of the Ionian University in Corfu, where he graduated with honors in 2014 majoring in Jazz Guitar Performance. He has participated in several seminars and clinics such as the 2nd IASJ 2010 with Gunther Schuller and Theodore Antoniou among others and other seminars presented by Armen Donelian, Elise Einarsdotter, Petros Klampanis etc. He has also studied guitar next to some of the most influential guitar players in Greece. His teaching skills started developing from a young age as he was always interested in sharing his knowledge and experience in music. He started instructing guitar and theory lessons from the age of 17. His last years abroad, he has been teaching guitar and theory in “Lab Music Education”, the leading school of modern music in Greece.
As an active musician he has played next to some of the most well-known singers in Greece, such as Thanos Mikroutsikos and Alkistis Protopsalti in several theatres and venues. He has also been involved in the Jazz and Rock scenes of Athens in several projects as a leader, a composer or a sideman, including George Kontrafouris’ “Fouris Electric Society”, “Nikiforos Papanagis Quartet”, “Cajón & On”, “Exploring the Field of Sco”|A tribute to John Scofield, Giorgos Litsikakis etc. He recently moved to Sydney searching to expand his musical journey.
