Welcome to the official web site of Wayne Naus
Trumpet Player / Arranger / Composer / Educator
to my web
site. On this site I have assembled a collection of my personal memories,
musical projects, recordings, performance opportunities, and heroes
that shaped my life over the past 45 years. It is in a way a thank you
and tribute to the many people who have helped me along the way. It
has been, and continues to be, an amazing musical journey. I have been
given many musical opportunities over the years that has not only shaped
my life, but also saved it. The first opportunity was in 1959 when my
father, Jack Naus, an accomplished trumpet player, introduced me to
the trumpet. At that time, I had no way of knowing the depth of the
trumpet, or the life long journey it was about to lead me on. The second
major opportunity came in 1966 when I auditioned on trumpet to enter
the Navy as a musician. Had I not mercifully passed the audition, I’m
sure I would have been sent to Vietnam and, consequently, not be here
writing these words. For that, I owe my life to the trumpet. At that
time I vowed to always pursue the discipline of playing and practicing
it. The third major opportunity came in 1971 when I was invited to tour
and perform with the Buddy Rich band. There have been many more opportunities
since then including performing the National Anthem as a trumpet soloist
at Boston’s Fenway Park for the Boston Red Sox.
