    Lea Ault
    Lea Ault is a co-owner of the Hapa Izakaya/Hapa Umi restaurant group (www.hapaizakaya.com). Born in Vancouver, she is an alumni of Magee Secondary School, the University of British Columbia, and the Vancouver Academy of Music. She started taking Kodaly classes in the old VAM building, on the site where City Square stands now (at Cambie and West 12th Avenue) in 1976. When the new Academy opened, she attended Kodaly classes with Mr. Young and studied piano with Mrs. Hardy. (Her sister Erin studied Suzuki piano and ballet with Mrs. Lee.) Her musical training stood her in good stead when she was a member of the national-award-winning Magee Chamber Choir. To pay for university she worked at The Magic Flute on West 4th Avenue and learned much more about classical music during her time there. She spent the 90s traveling and living abroad in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, London, England and Singapore. Now she lives in Vancouver, and still enjoys playing the piano. Her daughters Mio and Hana attend VAM for piano with Rebecca Kelly and Amanda Chan, and ballet with Alice Gerbrecht.
