Meet A Lancer: Aidan Combes '23


To say Aidan is into Instrumental Music would be an understatement! Aidan plays 5 different instruments proficiently. He was introduced to Instrumental Music at Zion Lutheran where he learned to play the drums, followed by viola, trombone, guitar, and bass. Aidan has been a major contributor to OLu's music program, where he also serves on the Instrumental Leadership Team and is a member of the Creative Worship team. Aidan has his sights set on LACM (Los Angeles College of Music) or Cal Baptist.

Favorite moment oN the Nechita stage:

2021 Christmas Concert where the entire Performing Arts department performed as one! I was able to play both the viola and the drums.


Finish this sentence - Ten years from now I want to be..

In Europe, performing music in some capacity!


 What inspires you?

  My friends.


What's one thing people would be surprised to know about you?

That I play multiple instruments.


When you are not performing - what are you doing?

Always practicing.


WHICH teacherS made the most impact on you and why?

Both Mr. Zeilinger, Director of Instrumental Music and Mr. Ryan Langford, Percussion Teacher! Mr. Z because he introduced me to OLu Instrumental Music and Mr. Langford because of his specific instruction.


Favorite Bible verse:

Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast.
