Kymberly Jackson began her quest for the perfect instrument at an early age and discovered her musical soul mate in the flute. Born and raised in Los Angels, Kymberly (also known as Kj) began classical training at the age of 12 and continued to master the instrument through her formal education. Graduating from Mills College in Oakland and receiving a masters degree in music, Kj was afforded an opportunity to study under world-renowned classical flautists Angela Korregelos and Priscilla Call.
