Jesse: More than a white coat

Jesse Wayson’s inspiration to play the piano started when he was only 8 years old. “When I was little I got obsessed with The Phantom of the Opera soundtrack and that made me want to play the piano.” As a Medical College of Georgia student, Jesse still manages to practice and perform amidst his busy schedule. He performed at the Body Donor Memorial Service and continues to play the piano as a stress relieverJesse enjoys playing old hymns and playing modern pop music, particularly songs by Taylor Swift and Lorde. When Jesse interviewed at MCG he was in awe and “very excited to see the piano in the Harrison Common.” Jesse draws a lot of parallels between the disciplines of music and medicine. 

“If you don’t put in the hours practicing the piano, you won’t be a good musician. Just like if you don’t put in the hours studying, you won’t be a good physician.” 

Great doctors, great medicine.
