Lucian McGuiness

EMP & CAP tutor

Taking pride in your work doesn’t just keep you motivated; it fuels your overall happiness. Take Lucian McGuiness, a bonafide music lifer who says that his favourite music is whatever he made most recently. 

Lucian joined us in 2020 to teach music composition and music in society. “I wanted to work at Catalyst because the approach is wonderful,” he says. He comes from a background in composing and musical directing. When he’s not at Catalyst, he’s spending quality time with his wife and daughter or writing his next piece. 

“One of the things that excites me the most in life is conversation,” says Lucian – and we can testify that he’s really good at it. His biggest life tip: “dream big and work hard, but walk downhill.”
