Anna began learning music at the age of 9. After a few years in public music school, Anna entered the Kazan Conservatoire Music College. She then continued her musical education at the Gnessin Russian Academy of Music (Moscow).
While studying, Anna took part in various festivals, competitions and master classes with world-known musicians such as Arto Noras, Gustav Rivinius, Natalia Shakhovskaya, and others. She played many concerts with all kinds of chamber groups, and as an invited artist for small Moscow orchestras. At the same time, she began her teaching career.
Later, Anna lived in India for a few years, where she took part in many music concerts, festivals and “jams” as a cellist and singer. She moved to Canada recently to explore new opportunities.
