Talia is currently in her third year of studying music at the University of Auckland.
Talia first discovered her love for the trumpet at the age of three, after hearing her father play. She began playing at the age of seven. Since then, she has been involved in many different groups through school, uni, and the community. In 2019 she achieved Trinity Grade 8 with a high merit. She has also had various awards and scholarships. She has played for Auckland City Youth Brass Band, Dalewool Youth Brass Band, APO Summer School Orchestra, West City Youth Concert Band, West City Concert Band, University of Auckland Symphony Orchestra, Auckland Uni Brass Ensemble, and many other ensemble groups.
Talia is excited to be a part of AYO and is looking forward to playing some amazing music with the rest of the orchestra.
