Mia Traverse is a senior at Sussex-Hamilton High School and has played in MYSO’s Wind Ensemble for three years. She has been playing alto saxophone, her primary instrument, for eight years and studies with her private lesson teacher and band director, Jon Waite, in both classical and jazz music.
In her free time, she enjoys playing and composing music, as well as reading, drawing, and spending time with friends and family. Next year, Mia will be attending Butler University to pursue a music education major with a jazz studies emphasis.
Mia would like to thank her teacher, Jon Waite, for his guidance and instruction throughout her high school career, as well as Mr. Hacker for offering her this exciting opportunity!
