From an early age it was clear that Kylie had a love for music.  It all began at age 4 when her parents introduced her to her first instrument - a small keyboard.
From that moment on, her passion for playing the piano was born and she began her first lesson with the keyboard in a garage in Sydney’s Southern Suburbs.
Kylie soon progressed to the piano and began performing family “mini concerts” with her sister who also possessed a talent for music.

It was during this time that Kylie developed her singing abilities and wanted to begin a career as a professional piano vocalist.
It wasn’t until age 20 that she began entering talent quests on a regular basis to try and get some experience playing to live audiences.
During this time she was studying a bachelor of teaching degree at university,(everyone needs a back up plan)!!

Her first performance brought her success winning the quest with a Wendy Mathews song “The Day You Went Away”.
After competing in almost another fifty talent shows, Kylie finally landed her first paying gig, performing on the Sydney showboat cruises.
She was then contracted to play overseas for a major hotel.

After returning to Sydney she began work as a school teacher for a short time before realising her dream of performing professionally.
Kylie started playing full time in and around Sydney at some of Sydney’s best live music venues and piano bars.

Many thanks to everyone who has supported me All These Years.
