Lianne studied piano and singing at Trinity College of Music. She went on to win the Song Prize in the Kathleen Ferrier Competition and to work as a freelance classical singer until the first of her two daughters was born in 2003. She started at d’Overbroeck’s as a peripatetic singing teacher three years later and gradually became more involved with the Music Department over the next few years, conducting and directing several operas and founding the school’s chamber choir, Gaudeamus. Through working more closely with students in ensembles at school she realised that teaching was the career for her and since 2015 she has been a full-time music teacher and has loved every minute of it! Lianne is also the House Co-Ordinator at 7-11 where she organises fun events to bring the students together in their school families.
