Lucy is a professional jazz singer and voice artist who has been living and working in Bristol for the last 10 years.
Lucy runs and fronts Paper Moon – a swing quintet designed for swing dancers and guests sing in several other jazz ensembles in and around the South West. As a teacher, she works with both adults and children and conducts herself with enthusiasm, patience and a sense of fun. Music is a joyful thing to produce, so Lucy believes that however hard you work, it should always be enjoyable and uplifting.
Teaching adults: Lucy specialises in jazz phrasing, rhythm, harmony, and improvisation. She also focuses on stagecraft and the emotional delivery of a song and easily adapts her styling to other genres of music such as pop, soul, folk and musical theatre. Above all, vocal health and sustainable singing are key. She works with her students to produce their own unique sound that will carry them through their lives without uncomfort or strain.
“You’ve been such a wonderful teacher to me. I’ve never gained so much confidence and progress in such a short space of time!”– Kelly
Teaching children: Lucy is passionate about providing a platform for children to be as creative as they can. Along with the Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival, Lucy runs annual interactive music performances in primary schools in the Bristol area aiming to inspire as many children as she can to pick up an instrument and enjoy making music together. As a one-to-one teacher, Lucy focuses on the fundamentals of singing technique, fun warm-ups, performance confidence, vocal delivery and the joy of singing songs.
