Lucy’s teaching approach is gentle and considerate, developed through years of learning and teaching music in the “folk way” – by ear, and also through 20 years of formal musical training. Whether the student is interested in performing or just playing for their own enjoyment, Lucy is all about helping individuals to create their own musical path, and to experience the joy of it along the way.

Lucy teaches her lessons online as well as in person in Malmsbury, VIC. Find out more about Lucy's pricing and availability below.

personalised approach

As everyone has different needs and sensitivities when it comes to learning music, Lucy takes care to tailor her lessons to the individual student. She supports individuals in finding the songs that will resonate with them the most. Although Lucy’s background is in acoustic folk music, she draws from a range of different genres in her lessons including pop, Americana, country, blues – or whatever the student is interested in learning.

Lucy’s warm and patient teaching style is a gift. As a ‘late starter’ to music making I have enjoyed the process and progressed more than I could have imagined.”
