About Antonia
Antonia started playing the piano at the age of four in 1999 as a student of the late Angela Chan-Moran. The following year she joined the Conservatorium of Music’s Open Academy program, continuing there until she started at the Conservatorium High School in 2007. In 2008, Antonia was accepted as a Piano student by Erica Booker and has been her student since. Antonia started to study the Flute with well-known performer and teacher Jocelyn Edey-Fazzone in 2005. She has continued studying both flute and piano, and in the last month has been awarded her AMus A in both instruments. Antonia has been selected for accelerated study of music at the Conservatorium High School. She is a member of two ensembles of the Sydney Youth Orchestras, and was, for a period, a member of the Sydney Wind Ensemble.  She has competed with considerable success in the Ryde, Penrith, Sydney, and Galston Eisteddfods.

Antonia also enjoys Visual Arts, Science and Literature and enjoys listening to the music of Ibert, Debussy, Ravel, Rachmaninoff and Scriabin.
