Paula Rahbari was born in Zagreb in 1974. She began her studies at the age of six with Mirta Pleteršek Blašković. Between 1987 and 1992 she was awarded First Prizes at competitions in Croatia (twice) and Yugoslavia, winning another prize three years later at the Alfredo Marcosig International Violin Competition in Italy. She was also recognised as one of the most talented student to receive the Rektorpreis from the University of Zagreb. Rahbari has undertaken masterclasses with Alice Schoenfeld, Dora Schwarzberg, Maxim Fedotov, Radovan Lorković and Michael Steinkühler. In 1996 she earned her diploma from the University of Zagreb Academy of Music as a pupil of Maja Dešpalj-Begović, and within the same year joined the Zagreb Philharmonic as first violin, becoming assistant concert master soon after.

In 2001 she became a member of the Málaga Philharmonic until 2004. Since then she has been exploring her career as a soloist, focussing mostly on chamber music and teaching. Rahbari plays on a violin made by Alp Altıner in Istanbul in 1999.
