About Tyler

My name is Tyler and I am currently a professional trumpeter, composer, and educator. I recently released a debut jazz album that was co-produced by Downbeat Critics Poll Vibraphonist of the Year and Grammy-nominated, Stefon Harris. I studied at New York University and received my B.A. in Music in 2012. During my years at NYU, I developed a keen awareness of the influence that a music teacher can have on a student’s desire to seek high levels of performance and creativity. I had the fortune of studying with two of the premier trumpet teachers in New York: Laurie Fink and Ralph Alessi. Each teacher taught me skills that have continued to serve me as a trumpeter today. My music skills were further accelerated under the mentorship of Stefon Harris. They each had a great influence on my work as a musician and I hope to provide the same impact on my future students.

As a professional musician, I have studied and performed a wide variety of music including jazz, rock, soul, and classical. I have a deep understanding of how these genres differ and how to develop the musical skills necessary to create the unique sounds of each style. Therefore, I am able to tailor my students' practice assignments to their individual goals. Looking forward to being a part of your musical journey!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

General Music

I am a trumpeter, composer, and educator. I studied Music Performance at New York University (NYU) and graduated in 2012. I have been performing and living in New York ever since. Over the years, I have continued to perform with many different groups that extend the genres of jazz, rock, soul, and classical music. Recently, I released a debut album that was co-produced by Downbeat Critics Poll Vibraphonist of the Year and Grammy nominated, Stefon Harris. I have also had the opportunity to start a new career in composing music for films.

After being preoccupied by this work, I am now hoping to reestablish my presence in music education. Growing up, music mentors were truly important in developing me as a musician and as a person. I absolutely cherish all the effort they put into helping me become the best musician and person I could be. Through their guidance I now understand the amazingly positive impact a teacher can have on a student.
