I am currently a sophomore at Lyme Old Lyme High School and have been playing the trumpet for about five years, and every year has been a pleasant one with music. I first started in Middle School, where I developed a passion for playing the trumpet. Soon after, I found a private instructor who helped further my knowledge and ability with the trumpet. I have played in various different musical environments, such as concert band and orchestra, marching band, the Old Lyme Town Band, and played in the pit for my school’s musical production. As a newcomer to Lyme Light, I hope to increase the diversity of its performances with the addition of the trumpet.
