In 2012, at just 14 years of age, Marie-Astrid entered the prestigious CNSMDP, the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, to study violin - admitted by unanimous vote of the jury. She received her Bachelor's degree with distinction (also a unanimous vote) at just 17, the youngest graduate yet.

AIn 2015, Marie-Astrid made her first recording, a CD devoted to Bach, Locatelli, Paganini and Tanguy. In 2016, she was awarded 2nd prize in the 1st annual Dominique Peccatte International Violin Competition. Selected to perform as solo violinist with the Orchestre Français des Jeunes for the 2016 summer and winter seasons, Marie-Astrid has already played as a soloist with the CNSMDP orchestra and the National Chamber Orchestra of Armenia. She is currently completing the second year of her Master's at the CNSMDP and has applied for admission to the Kronberg Academy for exceptionally gifted young violinists, violists and cellists who have won an international competition.
