Introduced by our music mentor Sam, TICE Music students had the honour of performing their original songs to Wayne whilst sound checking for the Final Show. Wayne was kind enough to share his views on the music they composed – more specifically, how they performed to the hypothetical audience. He felt really strongly about presence and connecting with those who are listening. The students were immediately absorbed in his passion and drive for simply sharing music with the world. Including myself.

I was intrigued to hear more about what his thoughts were on not only the performances he witnessed but the purpose of TICE and how organisations like us can help musicians who aspire to follow in his footsteps.
