"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. She has completed her Certificate IV in Classical Music Composition and is graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Composition from the University of Western Australia in July 2019.

Lila is an accomplished pianist and percussionist, 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.
