As well as performing, Lucy teaches group workshops at festivals and schools in ukulele, songwriting, guitar, Appalachian dulcimer and singing.

Her workshops always contain a mixture of demonstration and group participation, and she is able to tailor her workshops to suit different age groups, ability levels and/or a particular thematic focus.

  • Songwriting Workshop at The Patch Primary School, Belgrave VIC 2012 – writing and arranging a song as a group
  • Youth Ensemble at Roses Gap Music Camp, VIC 2014

Private Lessons

Lucy also teaches one-on-one lessons in ukulele, guitar and Appalachian dulcimer from her home studio in Coburg, VIC. She has a fun, flexible approach to teaching, developed through years of learning and teaching music in the “folk way” – by ear, and also through 15 years of formal musical training. She pays close attention to individual students’ needs and learning goals. She teaches students starting from age 6 to adult.


Lucy has an Advanced Diploma of Music (Jazz Contemporary) from NMIT in Melbourne, and holds a current Working with Childrens’ Check.
