Learn ukulele from a professional songwriter and performer
I play bass and sing harmony in a professional rock band based out of Brooklyn. We have been playing together since 2016 and have done two national tours coast to coast across the United States. We have released seven music videos and three albums (currently working on our fourth). I graduated from Vassar College in 2020, where I was principal bassist in the orchestra. In college I lead three different jazz combos, played in the pit orchestras of eleven theatre productions, played in various string chamber groups, and taught electric bass to college age students. Most of my musical training is classical. Before picking up bass guitar six years ago, I played upright classical bass for eight years. In high school I had sessions with middle schoolers after school to help them improve their sight reading skills and technique on upright bass. I also founded a ukulele club in high school, where I taught other students to play and planned performances. I am a proficient ukulele player, and can teach basic keyboard, especially to young children. I have experience working with children at summer camps and babysitting. As a bass player, I know just how crucial rhythm is when it comes to playing music. Ukulele is a great instrument to break into song writing. I am happy working with students who have a range of musical interests and starting points. I can help you learn to read music, play your favorite song, perfect a sonata, sing and play at the same time, or write a punchy bass line. I look forward to meeting you!

Lucy is such a patient and sweet teacher. She is extremely knowledgeable and I was very impressed with how quickly my son progressed. He was in a musical rut and after a few lessons with Lucy I’d come home and find him practicing excited to show me his newest song! I highly recommend Lucy!

Lucy's ability to breakdown complex topics and techniques dramatically improved my ability to play bass. I have been playing on and off for a few years but was largely self taught, after six months of practice I made more headway than I had in the previous 2 years. Her lesson plans were well structured and enabled me to practice on my own time. This allowed me arrive ready for my next lesson and to tackle a new technique.

Lucy is a great instructor, I have learned very much from her thus far and feel my bass and musical abilities growing every session! She is also very nice and informative in terms of music theory as a whole. I very much enjoy my time with her! I wholeheartedly recommend!
