Lucy Will, 15, began playing the piano at the age of 5 and has studied with Dr. Wendy Yamashita in Hawaii for the past 8 years.

She was also a part of Hawaii's All-State Orchestra which culminated in a performance in January 2020. In her free time, Lucy enjoys giving back to the community and is currently mentoring a young, visually impaired child on the violin using the Suzuki method.
