Amethyst has achieved all this musical success, despite a profound disability.
Having completed her HSC at Narooma High she started her degree in Sound and Composition at Wollongong University in 2007. After taking some time off to concentrate on her sailing she started a degree in Psychology at Sydney University but this has now taken a back seat to her sailing and she elected to change to a Diploma in Music.
This gives her more flexibility for her sailing. She is sailing with the Australian Paralympics Team and training out of Middle Harbour Yacht Club. In 2011-12 she was ranked thirdin the world in the class (the 2 persondiscipline).
Her last big gig was with James Morrison in Melbourne.
Her brother is working on a new trumpet stand that will allow her access to the trumpet without the need for outside assistance and possibly an electric trombone.
