Ms. Mayne credits her college composition teacher, Ronald Caviani, with introducing her to a world of more unusual tonalities filled with dissonance and complex harmonies, and who encouraged her to write using less traditional rhythms and form structures.  His influence can be heard in the following works for flute choir:  Suite No. 2, The Balcony, and Seascape.
