Bradley Kunda is a Doctor of Music Performance of the Australian National University and is quickly gaining recognition as a collaborative pianist of fine repute with a special interest in working with singers.

Bradley started his music career as a classical guitarist, and for ten years was a member of Australia's premier guitar quartet Guitar Trek. His commercial recordings on the ABC Classics, Tall Poppies, and Soundset Recordings labels have earned him critical acclaim.

After winning first prize in the 5th Córdoba International Classical Guitar Competition (Spain), his concert career has seen him perform throughout Europe and at leading music festivals in Australia.

Following nearly two years of private mentorship with the late conductor and educator Richard Gill OA, Bradley has now turned his professional performing activities to the piano. He is currently pursuing a master's degree in collaborative piano at the prestigious Sydney Conservatorium of Music, where he has been studying with David Miller, Phillip Shovk and Dr Jeanell Carrigan. He recently served as trainee pianist for the New Zealand Singing School, and an apprentice répétiteur at the Berlin Opera Academy. After only a relatively short period of activity, Bradley has already enjoyed collaborations with several outstanding Australian singers including Christine Douglas (former principal artist, Opera Australia), Nicholas Jones (young artist, Opera Australia), and numerous talented singers within the Pacific Opera Young Artist Program.

Complementing his performing activities, Bradley is also an established composer and experienced teacher and student development professional. He is represented as an Associate Artist of the Australian Music Centre, and is also an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (UK). Bradley has held teaching positions at the Australian National University School of Music and the University of Newcastle School of Creative Arts.
