Piano lessons for adults - City of London EC4
Lucinda specialises in teaching adults: beginners, re-starters and enthusiasts, to play the music that they love and long to play.
Believing that you have the capacity to achieve the goals that inspire and excite you, she helps you identify your dream as a piano player, and make it a reality.
Recognising that piano players long to be able to play something whenever they pass a piano, she teaches her students to memorise, improvise and play by ear, as well as read notes, so there’s always something gorgeous they can play anytime, anywhere.

With over thirty years of piano teaching experience, classically trained, and with a love of the classics, light music and jazz, Lucinda can help you:
- read music
- play by ear and improvise
- understand theory, form and chord progressions
- develop secure and comfortable technique
- interpret authentically and imaginatively
- perform regularly in groups, at soirees and formal concerts
- play duets and piano for six hands
- take part in Master Classes
- join in the annual residential piano weekend in Norfolk
- prepare for Grade exams (classical and jazz), and Diplomas
- feel motivated and supported by fellow students
- conquer performance anxiety
Lessons are taught individually, but there is the additional option of two or three group lessons per term in which students can meet and play to a supportive and encouraging network of piano friends, sharing ideas, repertoire, and resources. The group lessons also help students develop confidence, and a greater sense of ease and enjoyment, when playing to others.
