Samara Shanino

Hello! I’m a 27 year old student from Melbourne, currently completing a degree in Music Performance at Melbourne University.

I’ve played the violin for 17 years and have been teaching it privately for 5 years. As well as teaching private students, I currently teach at High Street Music in Preston and Pascoe Vale Girls Secondary, and I previously worked at Volaris Music (2020-2022). Other relevant experience includes a position as a strings tutor with the Junior Strings of Banyule (2016-2020).

I have plenty of experience teaching beginner-intermediate players with a wide age range (4 year olds to people in their 50s) all with a spectrum of goals. If you feel comfortable I always love to know what my students like to play and what they might like to achieve with their learning, whether it be a leisure/creative outlet or taking exams as a way to more easily track progress.

My current rates are:
$30/half hour lessons at my address (Preston)
$35/half hour lessons in Preston/Thornbury/Reservoir
$40/half hour lessons in areas further out, eg. Northcote, Brunswick

Preston, Thornbury, Reservoir, Northcote, VIC
Also travelling in the local area
