Kynoebi Simpson-Hankins

Esther Boyer College of Music, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA

I am currently a junior in college attending Temple University with a double major in music performance and engineering. I play multiple instruments which are the flute, alto saxophone, and piccolo. I also play many genres of music including jazz, classical, r&b, and pop. I have been playing music for almost all of my life and it has always been a huge influence on me and had an impact since I was raised in a musical household. Now, I try to expose others to new music and connect with them in a way other than words and try to educate people and communities on the history and importance of music. I look forward to continuing my musical studies at Temple University.
