Hello, my name is Kayla Kimo and I am a singer, songwriter, guitar and piano player from Edmonton. Music has always and still is a big part of my life as I grew up surrounded with it, being that my dad is a guitar player and my mom a singer. I am the second of three girls in my family and both of my sisters are also very musical. In having such a musical family, I have had and still do get many opportunities to write songs and perform together with them. My older sister, along with one of my cousins and I also have a band called, “HOLLE” which has had many opportunities to perform and has even had 4 singles make it on the top 40 charts for Canadian Christian Radio.
To share a little more of my music background, I have graduated with two Music Diplomas from MacEwan University where I studied guitar as my principle instrument and I am now currently studying as a Vocal Major in the Bachelor of Jazz and Contemporary Music Program at MacEwan.
My passion is to help people find their own voice as a musician, and encourage others to have fun while pursuing their music dreams. As a teaching style, I really focus on what my students are interested in learning and then use that as the base for my lessons. Being a part of the Resonate team is a way for me to pursue my dreams and I know it will be the same for you.
