Anne started her music training at age three, sitting on the piano bench next to her mother who had been a professional pianist and singer herself in New York City. While continuing to learn her way around the keyboard, Anne also later learned to play flute and piccolo. However, it was when she began studying the concert harp that Anne found her career.
It was around this time that Anne received first her Bachelor of Music degree, and subsequently her Master of Arts degree in performance from California State University at Long Beach (an excellent place to study, in case you're wondering).
For more than twenty years, Anne was seen toting her harp to gigs from symphony orchestra concerts and civic light operas, to elegant restaurants and weddings, and to everything in between. Though her earliest composition was written by her at the ripe old age of eight, it was when she rediscovered her love for the keyboard that music composition finally took its place as her primary occupation.
