Lucy believes that one of the key things to any pupil enjoying and progressing in a musical instrument is having a good teacher. So many of Lucy’s contemporaries comment that they gave up the piano because their lessons were dull and they lacked a rapport with their teacher. As with any academic or artistic subject it is the teacher’s role to develop interest and passion from their pupils and make lessons fun and engaging.
The piano is well known to develop coordination and motor skills in both children and adults. The rhythm element of music also assists with mathematical skills. Lucy feels that most importantly playing music is a fabulous way to develop confidence in expressing emotion and artistic interpretation.
“Miss Lucy is by far the most creative, imaginative and patient teacher I know. She always offers useful tips and guidance for the trickiest questions and makes learning so much fun! Thank you for helping me achieve such a high mark in Grade 3 !” Diana.
“It has been a pleasure to watch my daughter get an education in music under Miss Lucy’s artful guidance. Miss Lucy offers so much more than a piano lesson. Along with a very high standard of teaching, she instills a lifelong love of music, allowing her students to be creative and explore a wide range of music. She has an extremely positive and flexible approach. My daughter adores Miss Lucy! She passed her Grade 3 exam with a distinction after studying the piano for just over year!”. Armine, mother of Diana
