Lynnette Cruickshank - Music Tutor
About Lynnette Cruickshank
Based in Leith, Edinburgh - I am an enthusiastic and motivated teacher who believes in a fun learning environment tailored to each individual student.
After studying through Abertay University at Edinburgh college, I received a BA in Popular Music Performance with distinction. The degree had a principle study in vocals, however I also teach piano, flute, recorder, music theory and I play guitar and bass.
My vocal experience is vastly varied, as I have sung in many different styles – including classical, musicals, rock and pop.
I am PVG certified.
I enjoy performing and composing and I released my first album, “Battery Powered” in July 2013 under the Nom de Plume Llennett. During my degree, I began writing an original musical called “The Cassandra Effect.”
I have three cats: Bagheera, Charcoal and Kali, and a daughter called Korra. My pronouns are she/her/hers.
I began teaching in Autumn, 2013, at Dads Rock Academy. After a year of volunteering, I was given the role of Lead Vocal Tutor.
In early 2015, I worked at the Portobello Music School for a term as a vocal coach.
Then, in August of 2015, I began teaching multiple instruments at Lamp House Music in Haddington.
Since 2017, I have started teaching from home and I have set up Melody Mummies, which is a choir for mums (or any type of guardians) and babies.

I offer a demo recording service (temporarily on hold due to covid restrictions)
Do you need to send in a demo to colleges or universities?
Or do you have something else in mind?
I have recorded for people in the past for birthday presents and wedding gifts.
I charge £15 per hour up to a maximum of £50 per track.
If you wish to use a pre-existing backing track, that works well. I can also offer to create a custom backing track. See below for examples.
Please get in contact to discuss this further, as it will be based on the individual.
Radioactive - Melanie Maie
Skye Boat Song - Caroline Reid
While you Mourn - Llennett
Here are some examples of my recording work with various artists.
The first features Melanie Maie singing "Radioactive" with a pre-bought backing track.
The second features Caroline Reid singing "The Skye Boat Song" using a backing track made with "iReal Pro." This software can create a backing track simply by inputting chord names in sequence.
The third features Llennett singing an original song, "While you Mourn." This backing track was made from scratch using "Logic Pro."
I am more than happy to create backing tracks for each individual. Pricing depends on the amount of time it takes to create one.
