About the Leader -  Michael Haidas

About the Leader -  Michael Haidas

Bio for Michael Haidas: Michael Haidas enjoys sharing his love of music as a teacher and a performer. For over 30 years he has performed in concerts and open air events and works with individuals of all ages and with groups. He speaks English, Greek, French, German and some Italian and Russian too! The primary language spoke during this week will be English. Music, dancing and singing is part of everyday life in Greece - what better place to enjoy learning. Michael says singing not only gathers people it unites people, a song is the shortest distance between two people.
