Lydia Jones
BMus (Hons)

Lydia began playing piano at the age of three and began teaching at the age of 15, having completed all grades within the Royal Irish Academy of Music. Lydia graduated in 2015 from the National University of Ireland, Maynooth with a BA (Hons) in music where she was classically trained to a concert level. Here, she was avidly involved in the Maynooth University Choir and performed for former president Mary McAleese during her time in the choir. She has also accompanied many ensembles as well as performing solo for the University lunch time concerts herself. As well as playing piano, she has also played saxophone with multiple jazz ensembles around both London and Ireland. Most recently Lydia has began her Masters in music therapy in Queen Margaret University and is hoping to continue on the excellence of music therapy practice and research in Scotland.

Lydia has many years teaching not just piano but music. She has taught at mainly primary level to a multitude of abilities both privately, within a classroom environment as well as intervention for students with different disabilities and issues. She strongly believes that anyone can play the piano and most importantly it can be both fun as well as a relaxation and therapy in its own right.

  • If I had any super power it would be the ability to turn any situation into a musical on the spot.
  • The next instrument I'd like to learn is the sitar.
  • I've never ever gotten a brain freeze! (I can eat ice cream and drink milkshakes super fast because of it)
  • The strangest food I've ever eaten is a double bacon cheese burger that was both dairy and meat free!
