Lucy has been an enthusiastic music student since the age of three, receiving tuition in both Violin and Piano through the Orange Regional Conservatorium of Music. Lucy has been very involved with her local conservatorium having played in ensembles and orchestras there for over 14 years, and has benefitted from many opportunities through the regional conservatorium network. In the last six years Lucy has had the opportunity to participate in student programs with the Regional Conservatorium Orchestra, the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Australian World Orchestra, the Australian Youth Orchestra National Music Camp, and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. Lucy was awarded her AMusA in Violin at 15 years of age and also holds a Certificate of Performance in Piano.
Lucy has benefitted enormously from several masterclass opportunities including: Paola Biondi and Deborah Brunialti (Piano); Simon Tedeschi (Piano); Avan Yu (Piano), Charlie Siem (Violin) and a masterclass with the Australian String Quartet lead by Dale Barltrop.
Lucy loves teaching and making music and feels privileged to have won various competitions and awards that allow her to work and learn from amazing mentors and orchestras. Her recent accolades include winning the 2016 and 2018 Orange Regional Concerto Competitions and the 2017 Macquarie Symphony Orchestra “Thompson Prize” Concerto Competition. In 2018, Lucy’s long association with the ORC was recognised by naming the Senior String Scholarship in her honour.
Lucy is now pursuing her dream to become a professional musician by studying a Bachelor of Music Performance Degree at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
