Name: Lucy Temby

Role: Alumna and Former Junior Fellow in Learning and Participation 

About: Australian soprano Lucy Temby is an experienced arts-for-health project manager, trainer and facilitator. After graduating as a postgraduate classical singer in 2018, she became an RNCM Fellow in Learning and Participation and founded SoundUp Arts, an incredible not for profit organisation committed to producing music and arts programmes for people living with dementia and their families. One of the motivations for founding the organisation was to provide training and performance opportunities for emerging artists, including our students and alumni, and to create more connections between young musicians and older people in their communities.  

Lucy has since returned to Australia and is working in wellbeing and community outreach for the aged care industry. SoundUp Arts continues to run in the UK thanks to the co-leadership of alumna Rachel Speirs, and is proudly still partnering with the RNCM to bring joy through music to people living with dementia. 

Did you know? Since 2019, SoundUp Arts has produced almost 9,500 musical and creative engagements in person and online, trained 120 students through Music-Made-Well, and delivered 350 resource packs to people living with dementia.
