Laurel Wayne: England

Elana Zeltser

Laurel Wayne ’13 worked closely with the first female trumpet player to ever hold a principal position in an orchestra, Anne McAneney, in order to improve her playing and “rebuild a stronger foundation.”

In 3 lessons McAneney was able to quickly point out flaws in Wayne’s playing that were habits she had developed when she was 5 years old.

During her 12 years playing the Trumpet Wayne has never wanted to play professionally, but after her trip she is considering it.

“One of the biggest things apart from my music was just really experiencing what it’s like to be somewhere on your own… a little out of your comfort zone” Wayne said.
