An inspirational international lecturer, workshop leader, pianist, psychologist, teacher, writer and consultant, Lucinda's work is informed by her life's themes: music, dance, psychology, education, empathy, alignment and intuition:
“I help people learn to recognise and follow their own inner guidance, and have unerring faith in their ability to achieve the goals that inspire and excite them."
She gives piano lessons in the City of London EC4 to adult beginners, re-starters and enthusiasts, helping them play the music that they love and long to play. She also works with piano teachers helping them with their own repertoire, teaching techniques and performance anxiety. One of her specialities is to teach everyone to play spontaneously, anytime, anywhere, whatever their musical experience, by ear and improvising.
Recognising the need, she pioneered Practical Psychology for Musicians in 1986 to help all musicians teach, learn and perform as effectively and enjoyably as possible. Her lectures, workshops and private consultations on the subject are widely recognised as an essential part of all musicians’ professional development.
Director of the The Piano Teachers' Course UK since 2008, Lucinda is passionate about helping teachers teach in the way that their pupils and students want to learn.
She also runs a five-day course to inspire and refresh instrumental and vocal music teaching, learning and performing in London for allmusicians, which includes practical psychology, playing by ear and improvising, and dance for musicians.

"It was a real pleasure to hear all your students playing their hearts out, and to hear how much they love and respect you, and how so many of them never had a teacher like you before who inspires them, encourages them to play what they really want to play, and fills them with the confidence that they can.That's so heartening to me because its who you are and at the heart of what you do when you teach."
