Kyle Moffatt grew up in California where he began playing the saxophone at the age of nine. Kyle was able to develop quickly, becoming a standout in his music program by the time he was in high school and eventually earning a scholarship to the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston.
While at Berklee, Kyle was able to study with a host of great musical minds such as Hal Crook, Joe Lovano, George Garzone, Bill Pierce, and Phil Wilson. Inspired by these teachers and many others, Kyle developed quickly, learning the intricacies of improvisation and composition, as well as adding the flute and clarinet families to his skill set. Kyle graduated Berklee magna cum laude with degrees in jazz composition and performance. He then later pursued his graduate studies at the renowned New England Conservatory, where he earned a master’s degree in jazz composition and studied with luminaries such as Jerry Bergonzi and Miguel Zenón.
After ten years in Boston, Kyle moved to New York City in the fall of 2013. Since arriving, Kyle has become an active member of the up-and-comer set of musicians in the city. Performing with his own groups and those of other players, Kyle has appeared at places like Smalls, Bar Next Door, Somethin Jazz, and Silvana, all while absorbing as much of the amazing music that New York has to offer as possible. He continues to compose and develop his own voice and looks to further advance his personal and artistic goals for many years to come.
