Ani was born in Yerevan, Armenia, where she grew up until moving to Colorado at the age of 12. Musical influences and culture ran deep in her family, and from the age of 6 she attended the Yerevan Komitas music school as a piano student and, later, also became a student of composer Vartan Adjemian.

Throughout her college studies, Ani gained a vast experience in every aspect of being a pianist. Her appreciation and understanding of differences between orchestral, accompanist, teaching, solo artistic, and collaborative endeavors comes from experience in all of those fields. Early on into her undergraduate studies at the University of Denver, Lamont School of Music, Ani developed a philosophy of teaching as a lifelong journey to understand the importance of music for each individual student and to develop the appreciation of our musical heritage. Having some compositional background herself, Ani has always been involved in premiering new music by living composers and testing the limits of her classical training by diverging into other styles of music. As an accompanist, she has worked with various choirs, instrumentalists, as well as orchestras and chamber groups. Currently, she holds the position of principal piano with the Denver Philharmonic Orchestra in Denver, CO. Ani continues to be active in her artistic endeavors in USA and abroad.
