Personal Message
Hi I'm Lucinda and I am a classically trained singer and musician currently studying for my Master's degree at the Guildhall School of Music. I am a well rounded musician and performing and teaching music are both strong passions of mine.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach all genres of singing, beginners piano, music theory and musicianship. I also teach academic music for any level as well as English and also maths just for KS1 students.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a Bachelor with honours (bmus) in music graded 2:1 from the University of Manchester where I graduated in 2013. I then studied at Birmingham Conservatoire where I graduated with a first class honours degree in vocal and operatic studies. I am now studying for my Masters in performance at the Guildhall School of Music. I have grade 8 distinction on voice and on the violin, grade 7 on the piano and grade 6 on the oboe (all abrsm board). I also received my Duke of Edinburgh award from Buckingham Palace in 2011.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have been tutoring since the age of 18 and have recently had successes with two of my youngest pupils both aged 8 years old. One pupil received excellent comments on their prep test for voice examination and the other received a pass with merit for grade 1 voice examination (both abrsm). I have also taught in group environments; I was a singing teacher at a stagecoach teaching children aged 13 to 18 years old. The children learnt basic technique in singing and an array of repertoire from pop to musical theatre. I also composed a song for the children to sing as part of their christmas play at stagecoach. I have also been the singing teacher at the Sote Academy in the West Midlands where I taught from ages of 6 years old up until children of 18 years old. This was a very high achieving theatre school and some of the older children I was preparing for theatre school auditions around the country.
How much do you charge?
I charge £35 an hour, £30 for 45 minutes and £25 for half an hour, but this is dependant on what type of lesson you are having. I would suggest that children learning under the age of 10 would only need half an hours lesson or 45 minutes.
Where do you teach?
I do teach at home in Islington and Highbury which is very close to Holloway Road tube station, Drayton Park on the overground line or the Victoria line Highbury and Islington. I am also situated very close to Highbury and Hackney. I am willing to travel to students homes if travel expenses can be negotiated.
When are you available?
I teach on week day evenings and I can teach on the occasional weekend if it suits the needs of the student but I prefer to teach mainly weekday evenings. I am also able to teach in school holidays.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach all ages and abilities for singing lessons and beginners for piano lessons. I teach all different levels for academic work and all ages and levels for music theory and musicianship.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
If students are wanting to work towards grades exams I am very happy to guide them with exam boards that suit the individual (e.g abrsm, trinity) as the different exam boards have different requirements. I can also guide pupils if they are wanting to study music at university or music college.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes.
Where and with whom did you train?
I have trained at the University of Manchester (bmus honours), Birmingham Conservatoire ( bmus honours) and I am now studying at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (Mmus and Mperf).
Tell me about some of your current students.
Two of my singing pupils have just sit their grade 2 (abrsm) singing exams after sitting their grade 1 singing exams last year in which both passed and one with a merit. One of the same pupils has just sit his grade 3 theory and got a distinction for his grade 2 theory last summer. Another singing pupil successfully was awarded a place on the prestigious National Youth Choir Easter Course this year.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I expect hard work from my pupils but at the same time I really want learning to be an enjoyable experience and with my guidance, experience and professional knowledge I can provide the best learning environment for any child or adult wanting to take up a new skill or carry on improving what they have already learnt. I also promote setting goals for my pupils every term so that it becomes a rewarding experience. Please do get in touch if you feel I can help you or your child.
