Lucy enjoys teaching singing, working with pupils ranging from age four to adult. She holds a DBS certificate and currently teaches for King's High and Warwick Prep in addition to teaching privately from home. She has previously taught at Weald of Kent Grammar School, Ark Greenwich Free School, Highams Park School, the North London Music Centre and for Scales Music. Lucy has worked as an assistant in a Music Kindergarten run by the North London Conservatoire, where she engaged children aged three to six in musical activities using the Kodály method. 

Through her teaching Lucy creates an environment in which students can feel comfortable, find their authentic voice and love the music they perform. Lucy believes in the importance of developing a healthy technique. She uses her knowledge of Alexander Technique and Hatha Yoga to inform her when assisting students with their posture, and in eliminating any problems. Lucy believes that, to a large extent, singing is a natural activity. She therefore helps students reacquaint themselves with their own natural impulses. Lucy treats each student as an individual and uses kindness to encourage students to practice regularly. This way they can gain confidence and progress, achieving their potential without anxiety.

Lucy frequently enters pupils for ABRSM, Trinity and Rockschool examinations - however, not all her students choose to take exams and it is the student's personal growth and enjoyment that interests Lucy most.
