Lewis Wright

Jazz Vibraphonist, Drummer, Composer


Trinity Laban played a key role in exposing me to music at a crucial stage. I had great teachers and just as importantly, great fellow students. I learned a lot from being in an environment where I had the opportunity to rehearse and experiment with other young musicians who had similar aspirations to myself.
