Born in Nîmes (South of France), Anne-Elise began her musical education on cello at age 5 in the class of Robert Duval. At age 7 she also began studying clarinet with Daniel Paloyan at the Conservatoire of Nîmes.

She received her final Diploma (on cello) from the Conservatoire of Montpellier, in the class of Yves Potrel. She also played in the chamber orchestra of the conservatoire for six years under the artistic direction of the violinist Jean Lenert.
Furthering her studies, Anne-Elise had the pleasure to work with François Baduel in Aix en Provence (France) before joining the Conservatoire of Bourg-la Reine (Paris) in 2006 in the “perfectionnement (graduate) class” of Diana Ligeti.

Master classes and summer academies have enriched her musical evolution with artists such as Lluis Claret, Gary Hoffman, Roland Pidoux, Jeroen den Herder, David Strange, Schmuel Magen, Xénia Jankovic, Anner Bylsma, Maria Belooussova, Roland Daugareil…

After she received the "Klaas Dijkstra Award" (Foundation Award K. Dijkstra for international students) at the summer academy of "Peter de Grote Festival" in August 2009 in Groningen, she graduated Cum Laude from Bachelor Degree.

It is still at the "Prins Claus Conservatorium" in Groningen, (Netherlands) in the class of Jan-Ype Nota and Michel Strauss that Anne-Elise finally graduated Master.

She is now a free lance cellist performing regularly in solo recitals as well as orchestral and chamber music concerts with her different ensembles.
