Pamela Goldsmith, adjunct professor of music, was born and raised in New England where she received her first musical training on the violin. She developed a passion for the classical guitar after an introduction at the age of 16.

Goldsmith studied guitar at the University of Maine in Orono, earning a bachelor's degree in music, and in 1991 won the Downeast Classical Guitar Competition held at the university. During the following years Goldsmith lived in New England teaching, performing and working in a musical instrument store.
