Anastasia began singing at the age of 10, when she started lessons with the opera singer and adjudicator, Barbara Kendall-Davies. During that time she entered various competitions and music festivals and at thirteen achieved first place at the Ruislip and Northwood Festival singing Schubert’s well known ‘Who Is Sylvia?’. Anastasia passed singing exams at the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) and continued her education at Brunel University in West London where she studied music and drama, graduating with a BA Joint Honours.
