Lucy began learning the violin aged 4 and the flute aged 9, and she enjoyed playing in youth ensembles from a young age. Highlights include annual European tours and performances at the Royal Albert Hall with Oxfordshire County Youth Orchestra, experiencing period instruments for the first time whilst playing with Oxybaroxy (Oxfordshire’s youth baroque ensemble) and performing as the soloist in Bach’s E major Violin Concerto with Oxford Concerto Orchestra.

Lucy went on to study Music at the University of Manchester, where she continued to play in a range of chamber groups, ensembles and orchestras, including leading the university’s string orchestra in her first year. Her studies centred around musicology and violin performance.

After graduating, Lucy completed a PGCE in Primary Education and worked as a class teacher for 5 years. She has now turned her attention back to music and splits her time between classroom music teaching in a preparatory school and instrumental teaching, working with a mixture of whole classes, small groups and individuals.
