Born and raised in Israel her love for music was triggered at an early age. She started playing classical piano at the age of 6 and when she was 12 she picked up the clarinet and later the saxophone. Throughout high school she was awarded musical scholarships from the American Israel cultural foundation 4 years in a row and played first clarinet in the young Israeli philharmonic orchestra. She was awarded “outstanding musician” by the IDF and was accepted with a full scholarship to study at the “Barenboim Saiid” academy in Berlin.
Hillai chose to play the P.Mauriat clarinet and saxophone since both instruments possess a rich open tone, spectacular intonation, responsive and free blowing and great key-work. Her instruments are her vehicle to find her unique sound and touch people’s souls through music.
