Sol Kingston is a 19 year old student of Melbourne University currently studying Jazz & Improvisation for guitar.
Sol began learning guitar at the age of 9, and immediately gained a passion for music and immersed himself in his Primary School’s band playing old and modern pop songs. Later on during High School, Sol joined the Theatre production and also obtained a busking license allowing Sol to busk on the streets of Melbourne, playing a range of classical and fingerstyle pieces from well-known players such as Tommy Emmanuel and Andy McKee. During High School, Sol completed VCE Music Performance in 2016, achieving the highest ATAR among his whole year level in the subject. After VCE, Sol did a year at Boxhill Institute studying Music and then moved to Melbourne University to study Jazz & Improvisation at the Conservatorium among many other talented musicians.
Furthermore, Sol believes that it is important to take musical education seriously and give students a comprehensive understanding of most aspects of music, but to do so in a fun and accessible way to keep students interested and enjoying their pathway towards becoming a better musician.
