Keyna Wilkins is a published composer, pianist, flautist and teacher based in Sydney. With international classical training at Bristol Uni and Bath Spa Uni (UK), Hildesheim Uni (Germany) and postgraduate composition at Sydney Conservatorium, she has branched into jazz, experimental live theatre, flamenco fusion and free improvisation.
Keyna's music weaves a tapestry of unique tonal patterns and rhythms creating an original and intuitive musical voice that is a hybrid of her sonic experiences, with a focus on astronomical phenomena. Eight of her compositions have been published by the Australian music publisher, Wirripang.
Keyna has performed around Europe and Australia including Sydney Opera House and the Basement, and many hotels and bars, in a wide diversity of ensembles and had compositions commissioned by Sydney Conservatorium. She teaches piano, flute and theory from her home studio in Ashbury, with a passion for helping students achieve their potential.
