Anjana is trained by Smt. Padma Sandilyan in the 'Ariyakudi Bhani' and Sangeetha Choodamani Srimushnam Sri. V. Raja Rao, who embelished the laya aspects and concert oriented presentation skills for 15 years now. She is currently under the tutelage of Sangeetha Kala Acharya Smt. Suguna Varadachari.

Anjana Thirumalai’s concert pointed to an upcoming artiste, who showed promise, but it also equally showcased another rising talent with the bow — Pappu Gyandev. It was an all-Tyagaraja-composition concert, which provided some familiar gems of the great saint-composer. Early in the concert came the Malayamarutham piece, ‘Manasa Etulo,’ which was sung beautifully, though Anjana seemed to lose control of breath twice.
