In her hometown of Akron, Ohio, Anne was born into a musical family of teachers, composers and performers. She studied piano and violin at the Cleveland Institute, her talent and dedication eventually leading her to Carnegie Hall with the Akron Youth Symphony. Anne’s musical path brought her to the prestigious Manhattan School of Music in New York City, where she received her Bachelor’s of Music degree in Piano Performance. After this, she continued her studies – earning a post-baccalaureate certificate in Music Education from West Chester University. While living in Philadelphia, Anne worked as a music teacher and office administrator at a local music school for five years and was a member of The Brandywine Singers, Chester County’s premier choral group, giving her the opportunity to perform at The White House. Anne is so excited to be in Charlotte, North Carolina, after years of enduring the frigid northern winters, and looks forward to growing an amazing music program!
