My name is Mandy Philipse.

I teach Violin and Viola from beginners.

I have been playing since I was 8 years old.

I have also played with Canberra Youth Music (formerly Canberra Youth Orchestra Society) from the age of 10 till 23.

I then started tutoring the younger players and have been tutoring Sinfonietta, from Music For Canberra (Formerly Canberra Youth Music) since 1992. 

In 2014 I started conducting Camerata which is the youngest string group for Music For Canberra and continue tutoring Sinfonietta, thoroughly enjoying my Saturday mornings. As well as conducting and tutoring for Music For Canberra I now teach violin at Ainslie Primary School as well.

I have continued playing myself in numerous musicals, in and around Canberra, since 1985.

Happy playing.
