Lorne is passionate about music and was first in both music and composition. He plays guitar, drum, bass guitar and saxophone and was in his school's concert band, jazz band, rock band and choir. He assisted teaching year 9 and 10 music classes and wrote his own material.
"Lorne has an exceptional musical talent. I have been his music teacher since he came to secondary school. I have taught numerous students over many years and he would have to be one of the most intuitively musical students I have ever taught," said Margaret Robertson from Mairehau High School.
He hopes to be the first of his family to go to University and would like to complete a Bachelor of Musical Arts and teach music in the future.
