Annamarie earned her BMA in Cello Performance from the University of Michigan, studying under Anthony Elliott. She made her orchestral debut as a soloist with the Austin Symphony Orchestra at age 16 and has performed as a chamber, orchestral, and solo player nationally and internationally.

A passionate educator, Annamarie began teaching in high school and continues to maintain a private studio. A "Suzuki kid" growing up, she received her Suzuki Pedagogy training under Rick Mooney. In addition to private lessons, she has taught in elementary and middle schools and has extensive experience with students of all ages and levels.
Annamarie is immensely grateful to the kind, generous, and brilliant teachers that have influenced her musicianship and aims to emulate their warmth and skill by making lessons a fun and exciting educational environment.
