Information About Lucinda - Bournemouth teacher - (2 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Lucinda:
Lucy graduated from the University of Chichester in 2009 where she studied violin with Eulalie Charland (of the Aquilon Ensemble). She also studied singing, guitar and instrumental and vocal teaching. She started learning the violin aged five, using the Suzuki method. Years later she was awarded distinction for her Grade 8 violin. She is a versatile violinist, playing classical, folk, blues, jazz or funk music, and specialises in improvisation.
In 2008, Lucy was deputy leader of the Chichester Chamber Orchestra. She now works as a freelance musician and teacher, playing for various singer songwriters internationally and singing and playing in her own groups. She has also had community musician training and facilitates singing and drum workshops and runs masterclasses annually.
Lucy is head of upper strings and a singing teacher at Coda Music Centre, and has a fresh and exciting approach to instrumental and vocal teaching. She joined the team there in 2009. Lucy is also the vocal coach and violin teacher at Absolute Music in Poole and other schools in the area. She trained as an instrumental and vocal tutor at university, and has also trained with Dr Rod Paton in community music. In 2014 Lucy trained at the Royal Academy of Music and did her level 1 and 2 of the Estill Vocal Method. Lucy has had a lot of success with her violin students, including many distinctions and one of her students won the Trinity Exhibition Award for gaining the highest exam result for an advanced instrumental exam in the whole of the UK. Many students have won competitions and come away from music festivals with 1st prizes. Lucy always provides regular performing opportunities for all of her students. One of her vocal students was the youngest ever singer to get through to the knockout rounds of 'The Voice'.
I feel the most important thing about being a music tutor is to be an active and inspiring musician. I like to keep my lessons varied and exciting whilst still concentrating on excellent technique and musicianship. I think using your ear and learning to improvise is equally as important as learning how to read music. I teach any ability, any style, any age, and I have a lot of adult pupils, so it's never too late to start learning an instrument or to sing. I also feel it is important to keep training and to keep up to date with new research about the voice.

Sorry about my communication skills today! I did respond to your text earlier but it appears to have failed, as did a second attempt. So I'm not sure if you have rec'd a message or not. I have a new phone and it's possible I'm not doing something I should be doing!
Anyway, to answer your text, I don't think we did arrange a definite session this week as I forgot to get back to you to discuss it. But apologies for any confusion. I would like to book a session next week though and I was wondering if Wednesday 12 @ 1630 would be any good?
Yes, Nina did very well on Sunday because when she got there she decided she'd rather not perform but off her own back, changed her mind. We were really pleased. And now Josie has decided she'd like to learn as well so perhaps we could talk about that when we meet.
Would you be able to reply to my mobile as your number appears to have disappeared from my phone.
