Anna Wolf completed her Bachelor's degree in Musicology at the University of Bremen and then went to Goldsmiths, University of London, for her Master's degree in Music, Mind and Brain. From 2011 to 2018 she worked at the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media (HMTM), where she completed her doctorate in 2015 with the title "Es hört doch jeder nur was er versteht. Construction of a competence-based assessment for ear training".

Since 2016, she also worked as a research assistant for teaching at the University of Hamburg, where she completed the teaching certificate "Good teaching practice" in 2019. In 2021, she returned to HMTM Hannover, this time as a consultant to the President, where she worked on the preparation of the Masterplan 2030 and the University Development Plan, among other things. 

Her research focuses on the assessment of musical skills, especially various listening skills such as analytical listening or sound perception, which are formed before and during studies.

In addition to these very specialised skills, she conducts research on the perception and impact of music in different contexts, including differently crafted interpretations, productions and performance practices. Other co-publications on neuromyths in music education, translations of the GoldMSI test procedure and singing in the music classroom complete her portfolio.
