Who I Am

My name is Maria Avramidou and I am a professional guitar and cello teacher.

I started my guitar lessons at Greece’s “Hellenic Conservatory” under the guidance of Angelos Nikolopoulos and later continued at the “National Conservatory” under Liza Zoi where I received in 1991 my first diploma with distinction. In 1996, I completed my studies in English Literature at the “National Kapodistrian University of Athens”. In 1997, I received my second guitar diploma with distinction from the “Attiko Conservatory” in Athens under Dionysis Katinakis.

In 1986 and in 1993 to 1996, I participated in seminars under Argentinian guitarist Roberto Aussel, organised by the “Nikos Scalkottas Conservatory” in Athens, and private lessons by the same teacher in France. In 2005, I performed guitar at a seminar organised by pianist and conductor Giorgos Chatzinikos.

I later performed in concerts either as a soloist or part of ensembles. Most notably, I was a member of a quartet which performed works of Manos Hatzidakis at theatres and concert halls in Athens over 2007 to 2009.

In 2003, I started cello lessons at the “National Conservatory” under Marina Kislitsina and got my diploma with distinction nine years later.

From 2010 to 2012, I was member of the string orchestra of the Athenian branch of the “University of Indianapolis” under the direction of Alexandros Chalapsis and I was also member of the “Nikos Skalkottas Conservatory” orchestra under the direction of Apostolos Chatonides.

I have taught guitar and cello at various conservatories in Athens, including the “National Conservatory”, as well as conservatories in Cyprus, where I also organised concerts.
