A native of west Texas, Ms. Anneliese Habermann graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 1998 with a degree in German Language and Literature. After serving as an accomplished Translator and Executive Assistant for major corporations, both nationally and overseas, she has decided to pursue her passion as a teacher with MusicalMinds. At the young age of 7, Ms. Habermann learned how to play the piano under the direction of Mr. Ronald C. Bennett, a published composer of piano and choral music. This provided Ms. Habermann with a solid background in music theory that she was able to apply to all music genres. As a 5th grader, Ms. Habermann began taking private violin lessons, where her love for music and playing the violin flourished. She was soon competing and playing in All-City, All-Region and All-State Competitions throughout Texas. As a young girl she would travel to Germany each summer to visit her family. During these visits, she had the honor and privilege to study with Professor Joseph Ackermann at the internationally renowned Dr. Hoch’s Conservatory in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. A wife and mother of three boys, she devotes her time to teaching preschool during school hours, is an active member of her local church and enjoys spending time with her family. Being a strong advocate of enriching and positively influencing children’s lives through music, she is committed to delivering effective teaching strategies while creating a nurturing learning environment to help at-risk children not only reach their potential, but also experience spiritual richness through music with enthusiasm!
