beginnings…

Leah grew up on the east coast of NSW surrounded by the best of Australias oceans and forest. After enduring many childhood expeditions into the wild (her parents are avid explorers and scuba divers!), she realised her passion was actually for music and drama. As an avid storyteller from a young age, she decided to dedicate her life to learning the required skills to express these stories on stage and became an active participant in many community events, concerts, plays, musicals and eisteddfods. She started piano lessons at age 5 and added classical singing at 11 and guitar and drama at 13.To further her studies in order to pursue her goal, it has been necessary to relocate to the city and is enjoying all that Sydney has to offer. In the future, she hopes to move to Europe to pursue her life long passion of Opera.
