Born May 9, 1988, in Vladivostok, into a family that had no professional musicians, Alexander Ramm started his musical education at the age of seven at the Glier music school in Kaliningrad. His very first teacher was Svetlana Ivanova. Under her tutelage he studied four years. Her extremely serious attitude to music studies and pedagogical talent revealed the rare musical capabilities of the young cellist.
After moving to Moscow at the age of 10, Alexander Ramm was accepted to the class of Maria Zhuravleva at the Chopin Moscow College of Music Performance. From 2007, he continued his professional education as a student of the Moscow Conservatory in the class of the renowned musician and the People’s Artist of the USSR Natalia Shakhovskaya, an outstanding performer and pedagogue who taught most prominent Russian cellists. In this period, the artistry of the cellist was molded and his individuality was disclosed.
Since 2012, he has become a post graduate student at the Hanns-Eisler Hochschule fur Musik under the guidance of the famous cellist Frans Helmerson, where Alexander Ramm perfects his artistry and mastery of the instrument.
From the age of 9, when he made his debut as a soloist with the Kaliningrad Chamber Orchestra in the Kaliningrad Philharmonic, Alexander Ramm brilliantly performs with solo programs and as a soloist with leading orchestras in Russia and worldwide.
