Cello, Piano & Music Theory Lessons
Lucy has had years of teaching experience and loves tutoring adults and children alike. She tailors her teaching style to suit each pupil’s needs, and has had fantastic reviews from her students. Many of her students have sat Trinity and ABRSM exams, all with a 100% pass rate. Back in New Zealand Lucy was teaching 25-30 students privately per week, and she still has some space available for new students here in London.
Lucy has tutored classes for university students at the New Zealand School of Music. For three years she taught keyboard skills, music theory and aural at NZSM, as well as conducting student examinations and marking written work.
Learn cello with me! It’s never too late to start and I’d be delighted to welcome keen students. All ages and levels welcome. Lessons are one-on-one.
The piano is one of the most versatile of instruments! Whether you’re a complete beginner or working towards your performance diploma, I’d be delighted to help you achieve your goals and hone your piano technique.
Music Theory Classes
Do you want to know more about music or brush up on your skills for an upcoming exam? Theory is something I love, and having tutored at the New Zealand School of Music I always enjoy helping musicians broaden their understanding of music.
Lucy has introduced me to cello for the first time this year and it’s been a pretty amazing experience! As an adult leaner, I have found Lucy’s lessons to be really enjoyable and also challenging. She very quickly picks up areas where I can improve and almost straight away I have found a real improvement in my ability. She’s really friendly and approachable and gives clear direction and comments. I work long awkward shifts at work, but Lucy has proved to be incredibly flexible around these, we just text or email when to fit the lessons in. And she has even come straight to my house for each lesson, is never late. Considering she also has a busy schedule, I have really appreciated it. I had a wee cello recital with my family after 6 months of lessons, and they were very impressed with the way my playing has improved from nothing to recognisable music! It’s been an incredible few months and I thank you Lucy for all your hard work and commitment. Cheers for making the cello an achievable dream.
Lessons with Lucy have been amazing. She’s so easy to learn from, from the smallest things like being able to not be afraid to speak my mind or the biggest of actually getting me to understand my music theory. She makes learning such a relaxed environment, and pushes me to actually achieve well. Since starting to work with Lucy, Ive been getting stronger and stronger with my music in a general sense, as I understand what I am actually playing, and the language and logic behind it. Im very glad to have started lessons with her, they have definitely been more than what I could of asked for.
Lucy has been teaching my three children (ages 11,10, and 8) since mid-2013. All three enjoy their lessons and get on well with Lucy. She is has a lovely manner with the children and is patient, calm and very encouraging. We have found Lucy to be reliable and consistent. Over the course of the lessons my eldest child has been preparing for her first piano exam and Lucy has coached her through this with confidence and skill. Since beginning lessons with Lucy we have seen a marked improvement in all three children’s musical knowledge. We look forward to many future lessons.
