Anna has Bachelors and Masters degrees as a Piano Teacher, Performer, and an Accompanist from the prestigious Gnessin's Academy of Music (Moscow, Russia) with First Class Honors. Her teachers were students or peers of world famous musicians, such as Blumenfeld, Igumnov and Neygaus. In 1980, Anna along with her husband and one year old son immigrated from Moscow to the USA. She lived in Rego Park, New York, where she taught piano to both children and adults, and in 1982 became the Musical Director of Shostakovitch Music School in Queens.

Anna is a highly professional piano teacher who appreciates the uniqueness of each student and what music can bring into their life. That is why all lessons are designed individually for each student. Anna combines Russian and American repertoire and methods in her teaching. Her kids enjoy their lessons from the start, playing songs they already know and love. Gradually, classical music is introduced, which in the beginning could be just easy arrangements. At the same time, more talented students play complicated classical pieces of Bach, Chopin, Beethoven and other world famous composers.

Anna loves teaching. She helps her students discover the magic and richness of the music world. Her knowledge, combined with lots of experience, patience, and practical advice brings back appreciation, love and respect from students and parents. Anna knows what is going on in each of her students life. Anna teaches them not only to play piano, but at the same time helps them to organize their time efficiently, to coordinate their school work load with piano practicing.

Anna prepares the most talented students for a yearly National Guild Audition and they consistently receive the highest possible marks from different Judges. Anna is flexible with repertoire - it could be classical works or Broadway musicals or Popular songs, tailored to the students interests.

All students perform at the annual recital, which is a big event for Anna, her students, and their parents. Usually more then 100 people are present in the large auditorium for the concert. Her students, ranging from 5 years old to adults, come from the following towns: Short Hills, Springfield, Summit, Millburn, Westfield, Greenbrook, Sparta, Cranford, Ountainside, Roselle Park, Chatham, Maplewood, Florham Park.
