Grace Lau began learning piano at the age of four and has been keenly interested in music ever since. During her primary school days, she became the main pianist for her school as well as at her parish. Later, Grace learned to play the zhongruan and participated in performances with the Chinese Orchestra. In her late teens, she attended Hong Kong Baptist University, majoring in music composition, under the tutelage of renowned American composer Dr David Francis Urrows, as well as Dr John Chan and Dr Chen Guoping. Her excellent academic performance at university led to several scholarships to further her studies, including with famous Hong Kong pianist Mr Choi Chongli. Since graduating, Grace has enjoyed a successful career as a local teacher at several primary and secondary schools. Despite this, she continues to pursue her love of composing music, not only for her students but also submitting a work entitled – ‘Because of You, I Become Worthy’ for the Catholic Evangelisation Songwriting Competition in 2003, in which she was awarded the third runner-up prize.   In the 2004 Green Children’s Songwriting Competition, Grace won the Merit Award with her original song - ‘Make Good Use of God’s Creation.’  That same year, she was invited to write ‘May This Seed Spread in Your Heart’ for the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Holy Cross Parish. In 2008, she composed ‘Towards Truth, Kindness and Beauty’ for the 60th-anniversary celebration of the Hennessy Road Government Primary Afternoon School, which was enthusiastically praised by the students and teachers. In April 2011, moved by the Hong Kong hostage incident in the Philippines as well as the aftermath of the 3-11 earthquake in Japan, she composed the song - ’I Hope There is Love in the World.’
