I take a holistic approach to teaching voice. When you sing, your entire body is your instrument, which means that you have to be attuned to your whole body to produce the healthiest, most organic sound. I've been teaching for 13 years, and in that time I've leaned lots of different methodologies. I use a combination of knowledge from my classical training in conjunction with yoga, mindfulness and real world experience to give my students the best path forward in their musical journey. Whether you're just starting out or already a working professional, with my guidance and teaching you'll be making healthier and freer sounds.

We can explore any genre of interest, however my specialties are in blues, rock, classic rock, bluegrass, and country.

Very knowledgeable and experienced in not just playing the violin but teaching it as well.
Chris T.
At the age of 58 I decided to start taking violin lessons for 2 reasons, enjoyment of playing music and exercise my brain. I found Lucy K on the takelessons.com website and she was able to accommodate my request for lessons in my home on a Sunday. Starting from scratch, she taught me the fundamentals of playing and I have made some progress over the last 8 months. She is patient with me yet will push me along and at time bring me out of my comfort zone, which is good. She has the ability and training to teach students from early age to older adults like me. In addition, she also teaches piano, which my wife started lessons with Lucy K at the same time I started violin. She has my recommendation if you have interest in either violin or piano.

Study with an experienced teacher and an award winning performer. Sing for fun or prepare for performances, exams, and auditions. I specialize in students ages 15+ and teach in a variety of styles ranging from Opera, Classical repertoire, Music Theatre, Gospel, and Popular song.

As a singer, I've performed with the Royal Opera House; Finnish National Opera; Opera Theatre of Saint Louis; The Dallas Opera; Birmingham Opera Company; San Diego Opera; Deutsche Oper Berlin; and Festival d’Aix-en-Provence to name a few.

I hold degrees in Music Education, Vocal Performance, and Opera Performance from Stetson University (BME), Boston University (MMus), the New England Conservatory of Music (GDip), the Royal College of Music International Opera School (ArtDip), and currently ...
