She studied with the maestra di viola, Candida della Pièta (who herself had been admitted into the coro in 1707). By 1756, Anna rejoined her parents in Bayreuth where they were in the service of Margrave Friedrich of Brandenburg Kulmbach; she held the new post of 'chamber music virtuosa' at the court, and dedicated her six op. 1 flute sonatas, published in Nürnberg in 1756, to Friedrich. From the frontispiece we learn that she composed them at the age of sixteen. In 1762 the family moved to the Esterházy court at Eisenstadt, where Anna remained until at least 1765. She dedicated the published set of six harpsichord sonatas, op. 2 (1757), to Ernestina Augusta Sophia, Princess of Saxe-Weimar, and the set of six divertimenti (trio sonatas), op.
3 (1759), to Charles Theodore, Elector of Bavaria. In 1767, when Anna lived in Hildburghausen, Thuringia, with her husband, a singer named Mongeri, details of her story are lost to history.
