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, and descant recorder, and I play guitar and bass. On top of my degree, I received a distinction for my grade 8 rock & pop vocals exam.

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 love to put a fun spin on my teaching and have recently come up with a wee cartoon character "Shelly the Snail" to help my students with slowing down while playing.

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 I am a mum. My pronouns are she/her/hers.

Schedule is currently full - get in touch to be added to the wait list.

Teaching Experience


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 2015, I began teaching multiple instruments at Lamp House Music in Haddington.

Since 2017, I have started teaching from home and when the pandemic hit, I moved all lessons online.

I set up 2 choirs: "Melody Mummies," which was a choir for mums (and any type of guardians) and babies, and an evening choir called "Sing & Gin." Sadly, they're not currently in action at the moment, as they took a back seat due to the pandemic and I decided to focus primarily on teaching and my 2 bands: my solo band Llennett & and I play bass in Auntie Vicious.


I teach children and adults. 

All ages above 7 are welcome.

I teach contemporary singing (i.e. Pop, rock, jazz etc) from beginner to advanced. I teach

piano/keys, flute, and descant recorder from beginner to intermediate.

I can help you start from scratch, do exams, get yourself ready for auditions, or just have fun developing a hobby.

"Lynette has been teaching our 9 year old daughter keyboard and is an excellent teacher. She is calm, patient and engaging. Communication has been easy and Lynette has always been quick to reply."

Ts & Cs

Terms and conditions for the terms of the duration of the lessons are that there is a 24 hour cancellation policy. Therefore, I'll need 24 hours notice if there is a cancellation for any reason. Any notice outwith that period, then there'll be no charge - however, if it's within that period, there'll be full charge for that lesson. That'll be charged as usual - so if you pay weekly, it'll be paid as usual, or if you pay as a block, it'll be taken from the block of lessons.

Any questions about this, please feel free to get in touch.

There are cats in the property - so if you're looking for in-person lessons, I like to mention this if case you have allergies, so please bear this in mind! I can always keep them shut out of the room (they are somewhat persistent, sometimes!)
