“It was great to be able to do something positive"

Local musician and opera singer Lucinda Scott used lockdown as a time to develop her private teaching career and bring her love of music to children while theatre venues were closed


Professional opera singer Lucinda Scott trained at the University of Manchester, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and Guildhall School of Music and Drama and until lockdown temporarily closed theatres worked for highly esteemed opera and theatre companies such as Thursford Christmas Spectacular, HERA Theatre Company, Longborough Opera Festival and Opera de Baugé. Lucinda is delighted to be singing with Opera Holland Park in La Traviata as lockdown eases this summer.

In tandem with her singing career Lucinda has taught privately for over 10 years, teaching singing, piano, violin, music theory and GCSE and A Level Music. She has also taught at stage schools such as Stagecoach and the Sote Academy in the West Midlands. Lucinda is currently a singing teacher at Tonbridge Wells Grammar School for Girls.

Online teaching
“While I was devastated that productions were postponed and cancelled during lockdown,” explains Lucinda, “it gave me a chance to develop my online teaching and I was able to deliver piano, violin and signing lessons via Zoom.”

“I had some lovely feedback from parents that my lessons were a huge help to them during lockdown which was so rewarding,” adds Lucinda. “It was great to be able to do something positive at such a difficult time for so many musicians and families."

Teaching technique
Lucinda says, "I believe in creating a happy, fun learning environment in order to get the most positive results out of my students. I aim to cater the lessons around the specific needs of each pupil so that they feel comfortable with the pace and make progress. 

"I teach singing (all genres), piano, violin, music theory and GCSE and A Level Music and teach all ages from 7 years upwards. I work towards ABRSM and Trinity exams with pupils, but equally happy to teach students who would like to learn for pure enjoyment. 

"I have an up to date enhanced DBS check and can do online lessons or travel to students homes (with a safe Covid setup) within easy reach of my home in SW15."
