Darja Mlakar Maležič began her musical education at the age of nine by playing the piano, and later joined the cello. Upon enrolling at the Secondary School of Music and Ballet in Ljubljana, she decided to study the piano (Prof. Gita Mally), but her interest in other instruments remained - she won three first and one second prizes at competitions for chamber groups._cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_
