Early years and education
Already as a child Nana Bugge Rasmussen was greatly interested in singing, and so she got her first vocal training in the Childrens Choir of the Royal Danish Academy of Music, where she started eight years old.
Parallel to private vocal studies with Anne Margrethe Dahl, she studied philosophy at the University of Copenhagen from 2005 to 2007, where she got accepted both at the Royal Danish Academy of Music (RDAM), Copenhagen, as well as at Universität der Künste, Berlin.
She began her studies in Berlin and continued in Copenhagen. In 2010 she gained her BA-degree from RDAM, and in 2013 her MA-degree, studying with Susanna Eken.
