Meet The Team
Anna-Christina's career began when she won a scholarship to attend a prestigious Ballet school. She began playing the piano and cello aged 12. She excelled in composition and honed her music storytelling style after she gave up her professional Ballet career to pursue music. She is qualified in Sound Engineering, Music and Sound Technology and Music Production. She has been a professional musician and composer for many years, lending her musical talents to other artists as well as releasing her own albums and recordings.
Her talent as a storyteller was noted by her audio production tutor when she wrote her first Music Audio Story for a college assignment! Her natural flair for strong themed storytelling, both in writing and in music, is prominent in her audiobooks. Anna-Christina became an award-winning storyteller after she created Storytime with Anna-Christina! She has entertained and taught 4073 children at nurseries, schools, libraries, and workshops all over London with her Music Audio Stories! Her unique storytime is popular and is now being turned into a picture book series!
