Kayano graduated from Osaka College of Music and made her debut in Kyoto. Since then, she has been working as a freelance musician and educator. Her musical activities are not only in classical music, but also in many different genres such as having worked with a Latin band and as a recording artist for TV commercials.

She has been active as a Body Mapping lecturer. In August 2004, the lecture on “What Every Flute Player Needs to Know About the Body” which Kayano gave at BFS (British Flute Society) International Flute Convention in Manchester, UK was highly acclaimed. She also has given Body Mapping classes at the William Bennett International Flute Summer School in 2010.

She is currently a professor at Tokyo College of Music since 2013, teaching “Physical expression and music”, which field of study is the first of its kind in a Japanese college, based on the Body Mapping. The lectures are attended by many musicians. She gives further lectures and workshops in many places across Japan.
