Composer Troy Wayne graduated from the New England Conservatory, earning his Bachelors, Masters (cum laude) and Graduate Diploma while studying with mentor Malcolm Peyton. After spending a year studying with Lukas Foss in Boston, Mr. Wayne moved to Houston in 2001 where he continued graduate studies at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music. During his time as a teacher with the Michael P. Hammond Preparatory Program at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music, Troy taught classes in music fundamentals and music theory for pre-college students in classroom and private one-on-one settings. He has also served on the faculty of the Summer Institute for Piano teaching courses in Form & Analysis for pre-college students. Troy also has maintained a private studio, tutoring and teaching private lessons in composition, theory, ear training, voice, piano, and public speaking for over twenty years. Students who have studied with him come from a wide range of backgrounds with different goals. Those who have continued with musical studies in college have consistently placed out of at least the first two semesters of music theory and achieved advanced placement in their chosen fields of study. Those who chose a different path continue to benefit from the education and training they received from taking music lessons.

There is no "standard formula" to lessons. Each student has their own unique background, needs, and goals. Lessons tend to be somewhat casual but are structured in such a way as to meet the unique requirements of each student.
