about  Anna

Anna started learning violin when she was 2 years old, but her heart was set on the  harp from the early age of  three. After two long years of waiting to play the harp , she was lucky to commence her studies  with Dr. Jacinta Dennett - harp tutor at Melbourne Conservatorium of Music.
At her first lesson she has learned a secret, that what she actually is learning is how to be happy
