From her birth in North London to her residences in Streatham in South London, Dring’s earliest years are discussed. Portraits are provided of her father and mother, including their professions and musical talents, and there are details on her older brother, grandparents, and other relatives as well as evidence of her middle-class background. Also noted are Dring’s church upbringing as a Roman Catholic and the importance of her religion at this point in her life, and her formal education at St. Andrew’s Roman Catholic Primary School and La Retraite Roman Catholic Girls School. Little is known of her musical education from these years, but there is a description of an early recital with her family and the musical instruments in the house.
