Svetlana Paramonova graduated from the Moscow State Conservatory in 1983, having studied under Professor Vera Dulova. While still a student, Paramonova was invited to play with the orchestra of the Bolshoi Theater, where she performed important parts in leading operas and ballets.

Beginning in 1983, Paramonova was a soloist with the State Symphonic Orchestra of the USSR Ministry of Culture (Gennady Rozhdestvensky, chief conductor). In 1988, she was awarded a diploma at the USSR International Music Festival, and in 1990 became a soloist with the Soviet Festival Orchestra. She joined the Russian National Orchestra in 1994.
