Born in Genoa, Italy, George emigrated with his family to the U.S. He began his guitar studies by learning to play songs by the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, and James Taylor. In college, he studied classical guitar, music history, and music theory; and played solo and in ensembles, and in theatrical productions.

After college, George studied classical guitar at the American Institute of Guitar in New York and worked as a professional guitarist and teacher for several years. He then pursued a career in New York and Boston in financial services, ultimately as a mutual fund attorney. During this time, he kept active as a guitarist and teacher, giving public recitals and playing for weddings and other private events. He was also a member of a guitar quartet coached by Tali Roth.

George has studied with Belgian guitarist Jérôme Mouffe and  Christopher Ladd, Head of the Guitar Department at the Hartt College of Music. He has been active in the New York and Boston classical guitar societies. He has participated in master classes with Aaron Larget-Caplan, Daniel Acsadi, Richard Provost, Fabio Zanon, Judicael Perroy, Scott Tenant, Bill Kanengiser, Ana Vidovic, and Duo Mantar (Adam Levin and Jacob Reuven).

In 2021, George relocated to Philadelphia and in 2022, began a master's program in classical guitar performance at Temple University's Boyer College of Music and Dance, where he studies solo and ensemble performance with Allen Krantz.
