George began his music training at the age of 7 with Themis Christodoulou (violin) and Dusko Zarkovic (clarinet). His teachers included Rocco Sbartella and Kleanthis Zambakides. George gained a BMus (Hons) Music and MA in Music Performance Studies from City University London under the supervision of Professor Rhian Samuel, where he studied clarinet with Julian Farrell. As soloist, George has appeared with City University Symphony Orchestra and the Moscow Virtuosi and performed recitals in Cyprus, UK, USA and Ireland. He has also been a participant and director at the Apple Hill Summer Festival (2003 - 2008). Since 2008 he has been living in Cyprus working as an organiser with the Cyprus Youth Orchestra as well as enjoying a freelance career. He has cooperated with many cultural organisations such as The Pharos Trust, European University and the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra. He is a member of Diamante Ensemble, Claretini Quartet, Amphiliki Wind Quintet and the European University's Wind Band and he teaches clarinet and chamber music at the Limassol and Nicosia Music Schools. Recently, he has been appointed as the president of The Friends of ARTE Society.

 Cyprus Clarinet Studio

Cyprus Clarinet Studio (CCS) was founded in 2008 by clarinetist George Georgiou. Its primary goal is to develop the Cypriot music scene, particularly the clarinet and woodwind sections. In addition, the CCS strives to give opportunities to young musicians to present their work both in Cyprus and abroad. To date, the CCS has given Cypriot musicians a chance to work closely with many young composers such as Artemis Aifotiti and Maria Kasinou.
