Who is Wayne Bergeron?

Wayne Bergeron, American jazz musician and trumpet player, was born in 1958 in Hartford, Connecticut and grew up Southern California. His interest in music started on the French Horn before he switched to the trumpet in 8th grade. While he was in middle school, Wayne was balancing on a box next to a car, while trying to balance, he slipped smashing into the car and chipping his tooth. This accident turned into a triumph. It is thought that due to this chip in his tooth he is able to blow more air through the horn and play higher notes easier, however this hasn't been proven and even Wayne himself isn't really sure what all contributes to his natural ability on trumpet. “I found I had natural ability for playing the trumpet in the upper register at an early age.” Even early on, he was able to capably play in a high register on the trumpet, a skill that takes most trumpet players years to develop. Wayne has said that it was difficult for him to learn the trumpet because he naturally played everything up two octaves. He could play a double high C before he could play low C.

Wayne took to trumpet quickly, Ron Savitt, his high school band director, molded his natural abilities into practical working skills. Savitt did this by having Wayne play and sight-read many different types of music, rather than focus on any one particular type of music. Wayne has credited this teaching method to his success in the studio industry today.
