Daisy is making her mark in Toronto as an accomplished collaborative artist whose love for chamber music and collaboration is apparent in her approach; this has made her highly sought after for her energy and talents.For 20 years, she has taught piano (classical, pop, music theatre), history, and theory, and feels fortunate to be able to pass on her love of music to the next generation through teaching and adjudicating festivals across Ontario.Along with teaching and performing, Daisy has also worked in arts administration, first as the assistant to the General Director at Music TORONTO, then as the manager of the Young Artists Performance Academy at The Royal Conservatory of Music. For almost 16 years, she was also the Front-of-House Manager at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Music.
Daisy's experience in completing her Bachelor of Music at the University of Toronto was a strong contributing factor in shaping her playing. After starting piano lessons at the age of five with Betty Wong and then Wolfram Linnebach in Edmonton, she moved to Toronto to complete a degree with piano pedagogue Marietta Orlov. Daisy has also been privileged to play for many of today's leading pianists, such as Jon Kimura Parker, Jane Coop, Marc-André Hamelin, James Parker and William Aide. In her participation with the university's chamber music program and as a popular collaborative pianist, Daisy has also been afforded the opportunity to be coached by several other renowned performers, such as Steven Isserlis, Laurence Lesser, Pamela Frank, Pinchas Zukerman, Jamie Summerville, Sylvia Rosenburg, and Jacques Israelievitch. Daisy has also completed further studies at The Banff Centre, Algonquin Summer Institute, Aria Summer Music Festival, and The Scotia Festival of Music. Daisy performed both as a solo pianist and as a harpsichordist, with an orchestra that toured British Columbia. Daisy is the winner of numerous awards and scholarships from the Canadian Music Competition, Edmonton Kiwanis Music Festival, Alberta College and the Royal Conservatory of Music.
