My whole experience with Theo Wanne has always been absolutely incredible! Theo Wanne mouthpieces have given me the right tools to mature my sound, develop my musicianship, and has opened so many career doors in for life. The values, passion, and innovation of this company is just as great as all of their hand-made mouthpieces. I absolutely love the “SHIVA’s” response and tonality! It is everything a soprano player could ever want! It’s simply brilliant and has such a rich full tone. Anyone playing on this piece will immediately stand out! As a social media influencer, this is going to be my new go to mouthpiece when people ask me “What are you playing on?”
JahVelle Rhone was born and raised in the heart of Kansas City, Ks, where he found a love and gifting in music in the church and at home.” “It all started in the basement of my childhood home, where my dad used to play the guitar after church and my brothers and I would dance for hours upon hours to his music.” “It was then,” JahVelle says “I know what it’s like to feel forgotten, at times, while growing up in Kansas City, music seemed to be the only way/ to get people to notice me. Music made me feel alive. It was like my magic trick, I could captive a whole crowd with just a few notes. It was then I knew, I don’t have to be the best saxophonist, I just have to be your favorite!”. At age 11, JahVelle began playing the trumpet where his teacher noticed that he was gifted and different from the other students in his beginning band class because he had the ability to catch on and learn quicker than most kids his age. His band director quickly moved him from beginning band, intermediate band and next to advanced band. From there JahVelle went to high school where he began playing many different instruments from the trumpet to the baritone, the trombone, the tuba, the piano and finally to the saxophone,which eventually led to him teaching his Freshman Band class under the leadership of his band director, where he would later teach himself to read both treble and bass clef which led to an interest in arranging band music for his 100 piece high school band and jazz ensembles. JahVelle’s studied at Florida A&M University where he studied music under the direction of Dr. Julian E.White and Prof. Charles Bing and after a short time at FAMU JahVelle later transferred to Kansas State University, where he graduated with a Bachelors of Science.

Q:What is your internal experience when you feel REALLY connected to the music?
A:Music has this special ability to allow you to travel anywhere at anytime; past, present, or future with just the expression of a few notes. It’s truly mental time travel (chronesthesia) without ever physically leaving your position. One of the greatest vehicles in human history is music!
