Abbie holds Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in Jazz Studies from Webster University in St. Louis, where she studied improvisation with saxophonist Paul DeMarinis and violin technique with Joseph Kaminsky. Her enthusiasm for education led her to graduate studies in violin pedagogy at Belmont University in Nashville.
