Recorder player and baroque violinist Yasaman Mashhouri was born in Tehran. At age ten, she began her first musical education and soon thereafter began playing the recorder and taking her first violin lessons. The recorder impressed her so much that she learned it autodidactic. She went on to study biology at Tehran University, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Science. In 2017, she returned to a focus on music with studies in Vienna, where she completed her bachelor’s degree in recorder performance at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna with Carsten Eckert. She continued studies in recorder at the Hochschule für Musik Nuremberg, with a focus on singing. She has been pursuing her master’s in recorder there since 2021, in the class of Jeremias Schwarzer. Since 2022, she has also been studying baroque violin with Pauline Nobes at the Würzburg University of Music.
