Kyle Malkin is an award-winning American Composer, Violinist, and Conductor. Kyle was born in Phoenix, Arizona in 1988 and began studying violin and piano at the age of 9. He was inspired by the new creative opportunities he found in music and began writing his own music almost immediately. Kyle studied violin with teachers including Paul Brisbane and Dr. William Magers. He studied composition with Karl Schindler shortly before entering the University of Southern California (USC), where he studied with composers Richard Lesemann, Stephen Hartke, and Donald Crockett.
Kyle's music has been performed by groups including the USC Symphony (Cassation), the Phoenix Youth Symphony (The Last Day), the Hollywood Studio Symphony (Dinner with Fred), and the Paloma Winds Quintet (Like Clockwork). His String Quartet No.1 won Best Composition at the 2001 AMEA Student Composition Competition.
Kyle has written and conducted music for several dozen motion pictures including short films, commercials, and independent feature length film productions. His music for Dinner with Fred won Best Original Score at the 2011 Van Wert Film Festival.
Kyle has performed with groups including the Phoenix Symphony and the Phoenix Youth Symphony, and he currently performs in his own ensemble, Suite Strings. Kyle lives and works in Phoenix, Arizona as a freelance musician and filmmaker. He plays violin regularly on the worship team at his home church, Gateway Church Scottsdale.
Kyle considers the most important accomplishment of his life to be his decision to become a disciple of Jesus Christ, whom he lives to serve in all that he does.
