After initially training in Adelaide, Lucinda graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts in 1991 and was subsequently awarded the Willem van Otterloo and Nickson Travelling scholarships to pursue postgraduate studies in baroque violin. She undertook two periods of study at the Royal Conservatorium in The Hague with Sigiswald Kuijken, graduating in 1995.

In 1996 Lucinda was a prize winner in the Bruges Early Music Competition with Les Quatre and began her collaboration with the Stockholm-based trio, The Musicke Roome. The group toured Sweden, Germany, Mexico and Australia, including appearances at the Barossa Music Festival, Australia and the Festival Internacional Cervantino in Mexico and recorded two CDs; the Pièces de claveçin en concert by Jean-Philippe Rameau and a live recording of eighteenth-century French instrumental music.

As concertmaster of the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra from 1995–2008, Lucinda led the orchestra through its national and international concert series and numerous recordings. She also featured regularly with the orchestra as soloist, including a national tour of Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons’. A versatile musician, Lucinda also plays the violino piccolo, viola and viola d’amore and has performed on the viola d’amore both in Australia and internationally. During this period Lucinda also performed as guest concertmaster and soloist with the Pacific Baroque Orchestra in Vancouver and with the Orchestra of the 18th Century in the touring production of Jean-Philippe Rameau’s opera Les Indes Galants in Poland and the Netherlands.
