His father, Mirza Hossein Gholi, a great master of the tar, named him Ali Akbar according to a very old Persian tradition in which the grandson was to be given the same name as his grandfather. Shahnazi began learning tar from his father at the age of 7. After five years, he reached the level where he was able to teach some of his father's students. At the age of 14, Shahnazi recorded two gramophone disks by playing some of the most famous Persian melodies of that time on the tar, such as Avaz-e-Afshari and Avaz-e-Bayat-e-Tork. Shahnazi also accompanied the great vocalist Jenab Damavand At the age of 18, after the death of his father, Shahnazi became responsible for his father's class and began teaching them.

He continued at a steady pace, and fourteen years later in 1929, he established the Shahnazi Music School. He recorded many pieces with the great vocalists of his time, such as Eghbal Azar, Nakisa. He also collaborated with other great masters of his time, namely Reza Mahjubi (violinist) and Hossein Tehrani (“father of modern tonbak”). Not only did Shahnazi teach his students the radif of his father, but he himself composed a very beautiful radif that was later named “Radif-e Dore-ye-ali.” Shahnazi taught this radif to his students as well, and he finally recorded it in 1977. He had already recorded his father's back in 1962. Shahnazi passed away in 1986 at the age of 88. Read more on Last.fm.
