"It is the artists of the world, the feelers and the thinkers who will ultimately save us; who can articulate, educate, defy, insist, sing and shout the big dreams." - Leonard Berstein

Hello future students! It is an incredibly joyful and rewarding experience to be able to whole-heartedly express ideas, communicate, and provoke meaning in our lives through the wonders of music; it is truly an honor for me to share my knowledge and passion with you as we embrace the world of music!

Hello! My name is Kyle Khembunjong. I am a classical guitarist based in Las Vegas, Nevada. I attended the College of Southern Nevada High School Dual-Enrollment program and was a recipient of the College of Fine Arts Music Scholarship at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to pursue an Undergraduate Bachelor's of Music Performance in Guitar.

Upon my years of experience, I have received various first prize awards across the nation, including the Orange County Guitar Circle International Youth Competition, the XXIV Annual Appalachian GuitarFest Competition, the UNLV Performing Arts Center Classical Guitar Competition, the Rotary Club Dan Stover Music Scholarship Regional Competition, and the NMEA Solo & Ensemble Command Performance Competition.

Moreover, I have also been recognized as a National YoungArts Foundation Merit Winner in Classical Guitar, a scholarship recipient of the Gateway Arts Foundation Scholarship, as well as for acknowledgment in the Guitar Foundation of America XV International Youth Competition.

I have also been fortunate enough to perform various solo and group concerts across Las Vegas, as well as work with and study from world-class educators and musicians. I have years of experience teaching young children/adults in a large array of playing levels, and I am eager to join you on this gratifying and fun journey through music!
