Lily Dai

Growing up in a musical family, where her father and brother were pianists and her mother was a singer, music has constantly surrounded her home. Naturally, she began playing the piano at the age of 3 and asked her parents for a cello which she received as a gift for her 5th birthday. Lily then began learning the cello under her father and studied under two senior lecturers at the Sydney Conservatorium - Georg Pederson at the age of 9 and Susan Blake at the age of 12.
