When she was seventeen she won a position with the Yakima Symphony Orchestra. During high school she won regional solo and ensemble competitions as both a pianist and violinist, and also began her professional accompanying career. Rebecca received her Bachelor of Music in String Performance at Central Washington University.

During her college education she performed as concertmaster of the university orchestras and occasionally as a featured soloist. In 2010 she was a guest soloist with the Oregon East Symphony Orchestra, playing the not often heard Concert Fantasy for Solo Violin and Orchestra by Nikolai-Rimsky Korsakov.
