Kym Wilson

Story

Hi, By the age of 17yo I had performed on 40 tv shows in Brisbane as well as live concerts, radio, tours, and jingles. I had a No 1 hit call Dreamboat in the 80's.This led to approx 150 studio sessions by the age of 24. After migrating to Melbourne and completing a degree at Melbourne University in Jazz & improvisation I was asked to teach flute there. My extensive gig history in Melbourne includes all styles of music and all types of flutes. I am currently playing housemusic, producing albums in electronic music and housemusic. If you wish to see me perform live check out the gig page on my website or contact me directly. With regular gigs and teaching in flute, vocals, zumba and yoga I am grateful to God for my gifts. Thankyou for reading my page. Photography credits:Donna Venables Artist

What is music to you? What does it give you?

I started performing age 6 and have never stopped. I love all music with a good groove. I study all cultural styles as most feature a flute of somekind. I breath life into the flute and my breath is God given. I play extended techniques but mostly with heart. Since I have a dance background from past years as a popular artist I love to play to the dancer. Aside from this I like sending my yoga students on a journey through a guided meditation accompanied by flutes.

What is your music dream?

I would love the opportunity to play in different cities and countries via invitation to tour or as a feature at major festivals. I also enjoy playing and recording tracks with DJs/Producers.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

I believe to change the world you need to change yourself. There is no point in changing the economic system if is replaced by ego driven and self interested people at the helm of a new socialistic movement. I do believe the current system fails to deliver. I like to empower myself and others through teaching yoga and meditation. We heal ourselves and others we change the world.
