Who We Are

Anna-Christina

Anna-Christina began playing the piano and cello aged 12 and wrote her first full orchestral piece when she was 14. One of her first classical piano compositions met with the approval of Richard Blackford (the British TV, Film, Opera and Emmy Award-nominated composer) and was chosen for a music competition to represent her school. She excelled in composition and performed at The Royal College of Music and St Paul's Church for the Royal Family several times.

Anna-Christina is qualified in Sound Engineering, Music and Sound Technology and Music Production. When she is not writing Music Audio Stories, she composes music for film, media, and meditation projects. She has also been a professional musician, touring and recording in various projects as a musician as well as a singer and has released several recordings.

She became an award-winning storyteller after she created 'Storytime with Anna-Christina', and has taught 3855 children at nurseries, schools, and libraries all over London. Her unique storytime has become popular and is now being turned into a picture book series! She is the author and narrator of Music Audio Stories.
