Adela has been playing the piano for nine years. For her, music is a way to communicate her thoughts and ideas when the possibilities of language end. She is currently preparing for her AmusA exam in August, as well as learning a program of five fugues for VCE Music Investigation. In addition to the piano, Adela plays the cello and enjoys being part of the Senior String ensemble at her school.

Adela has an interest and passion for music theory, especially the study of harmony and counterpoint. She has recently started to play the harpsichord, and wishes to broaden her understanding of Baroque and Early music throughout this year. Next year, she hopes to study music performance at Melbourne University.
