Hi! My name is Amanda Vandarakis and I am a violinist and teacher/tutor residing in Sydney's Bankstown area.
I have 13 years of experience as a violinist, wherein this time have performed as a soloist, in chamber groups, and orchestras both in Australia and overseas. Among classical performances, I also have experience playing for weddings, functions, and other events. During this time, I have studied both Music Theory and Musicianship to assist in the development of my practical career.
As a teacher, I love watching my students learn and improve week by week, with the aid of lesson plans that promote efficient learning. I am patient and am always eager to help those in need of extra assistance.
Having been in their position myself and knowing the hardships of the subject, I pride myself in making the lessons as enjoyable as possible.
I try to be as flexible as possible with all aspects of my teaching and scheduling, to fit the student and parents' needs as best as possible.
In addition to regular theory lessons, I also am available for help/lessons with:
HSC Examinations & Repertoire
School Repertoire - exams, performances, orchestra, chamber
AMEB Examinations (Grades Prelim-aMus)
Theory Lesson Rates:
1 hour - $50
1.5 hours - $75
2 hours - $100
Discounted rates for group lessons!
If you have any questions or queries, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Looking forward to beginning our musical journey!
