Sara Raybould, Acting Director of the University's London College of Music said:
I am really proud of Vicky’s achievements since graduating. She has a clear vision of herself as a musician and is an example of how we develop students at LCM and help them realise their true potential.
I finished my Masters in Music Performance with a distinction graduating from LCM where I had the opportunity to have regular one to one lessons with one of the top London/UK session singers and vocal coaches Kim Chandler. Through LCM I have also been awarded with the Worshipful Company of Musicians Silver Medal, one of the world’s oldest musical organisations.
I've been living, studying, performing and working in London since 2006 when I first came to do my Bachelor in Popular Music Performance (Vocals), Tech Music Schools - Thames Valley University which I finished with a First (2006-2009) and where I had the opportunity to have lessons with Ian Mackenzie.
Further Music education involved classical piano training from the age of five, taking my Grade 8 exam, years later, at Trinity College of London Examination board (Cyprus branch), receiving a Distinction in Solo Piano Performance combined with many music theory and harmony lessons and various seminars and workshops through the years.
