"When there are no words, there is always music. It is an honour to be able to bring joy to others, using a unique language unbound by provenance."
Lila is a cat-loving optimist who loves to laugh and finds ultimate joy in the heavenly harmonies that come with singing and beautiful music.
Her innovative music appeals to a wide audience; her work inspires and evokes memories and a range of emotions. She enjoys researching the capabilities of different instruments, resulting in works providing pleasure, not only to the audience, but also to participating musicians.
Starting piano lessons at the age of six and composing her first piece at the age of nine led to her being accepted, at only sixteen, as the youngest composer at WAAPA at the time. Once finishing a Certificate IV in Classical Music Composition, she transferred halfway through her second degree from WAAPA to UWA and has completed a Bachelor of Arts specialising in Music Studies.
Lila is an accomplished composer, pianist and vocalist, was chosen as a vocal soloist for the Australian Youth Choir in 2012, Perth Royal show in 2014, The Baden Street Singers in 2016 and NHarmonic Chorale in 2018, and has musical directed two community theatre shows. This background and versatility result in a perspective that adds quality to her compositions.
In her free time she rehearses with her womens quartet Side Note, volunteers for the Western Australian Charity Orchestra, spends time with her partner, family and friends, and most of all gives loving cuddles to her cat Fish.
