Here's a testimonial from a parent of a student in Parsons Green:
'Laura Lucas is an outstanding teacher. She is truly inspirational and her dedication, encouragement and enthusiasm is infectious. She has raised the bar for all teachers and we are privileged to have her as a teacher. She is patient, understanding and her lessons are the highlight of the week. She not only has high expectations of her students but is able to have them realized. She has transformed my daughter's flute playing and given her the confidence she needs to excel. To be able to combine this with being an exceptional performer is a rare treat.'
