Anne Elkins was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, to a very musical family. She began playing the violin at the age of 5 because she wanted to be just like her three older sisters. When she was ten years old she continued her study of music by taking piano lessons.
A graduate of the University of Utah, Anne received a BA in music, with an emphasis in violin performance. While there, she sang in the A’cappella Choir, played in the Symphony Orchestra, and was chosen to play in the Honors String Quartet. She has studied with Jack Ashton, Madeline Schatz, and Mikhail Boguslavsky. She worked for Peter Prier & Sons Violins and The Violin Making School of America for more than a decade. She has enjoyed teaching private lessons and playing in orchestras and string quartets in Wisconsin and in Utah, from St. George to Logan.
Anne currently lives in Morgan, Utah, with her husband, Keith. They are the parents of four children, with whom they enjoy traveling, river rafting, hiking, skiing, and exploring new interests. She also enjoys sewing, reading, and gardening. Her private music studio includes violin, viola, and piano students.
