Tyler’s strength lies in helping students discover the joy of learning and playing music from the very first lesson. 

He takes care to find what music students are passionate about and builds his lessons upon that using a method he’s developed to walk them through important steps towards mastery. Tyler believes that learning songs that students are interested in is a segue into the necessary skills of music like reading, theory comprehension, proper technique, improvisation, memorization and song crafting. Tyler works with students to find artists they admire and can gain inspiration from as a foundation for learning.

Tyler is inspired by and performs many types of contemporary music from jazz to progressive rock, but is also well grounded in traditional standards and classical technique.
