She was a lead instructor for Winston-Salem Symphony’s El Sistema inspired PLAY music program.

Growing up in Florida, Amber studied violin with Sarasota Orchestra musicians and performed in the Sarasota Youth Orchestras. She began studying Music Education at Florida State as a Gaston Dufresne Scholarship recipient where she studied string pedagogy under Dr. Kasia Bugaj and violin under Dr. Benjamin Sung. She was presented with the undergraduate Presser Scholar Award and graduated as a Garnet and Gold scholar.
