Louise Ackroyd - Committee Member

Music has always been a large part of Louise’s life. She had a passion for music and theatre from a young age. As a child Louise remembers attending her first musical theatre performance, The Sound of Music, at age 5 and has been an avid music lover ever since.

During her schooling Louise attended singing lessons and performed as a part of many choirs, concerts, and musical theatre productions. One of her most memorable experiences during this time was being part of the choir at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Opening Ceremony. While a university student Louise worked at Wagga Wagga Music School, as a singing teacher and administration assistant. As an adult she enjoys attending a variety of concerts and productions from symphony orchestras to punk rock, musical theatre to hip hop.

Louise has been the Administration Assistant to the Director since May 2016 and recently left LCMCC to welcome her first child. Prior to joining Lane Cove Music and Cultural Centre she completed a Bachelor degree in Medical Science (Pharmaceutical Science) and worked as a Laboratory analyst in pharmaceutical manufacturing for 10 years. Louise brings with her; highly developed communication skills, attention to detail, experience in documentation, Workplace Health and Safety and a genuine love for music.

The opportunity to continue being involved in the Lane Cove Music and Cultural Community is very exciting and Louise is enjoying being involved in delivering high quality musical education. She believes that studying music and performing, at any age, can help to develop essential skills and potential in all aspects of life…it’s also great fun!
