At 17, Tyler earned his Associate Diploma in piano performance from the Canadian National Conservatory of Music. Two years later, he published his ty’SOLOS piano series which led to other solo piano works being published in many CNCM piano books as well as Conservatory Canada’s “Contemporary Idioms” series.
In 2006, Tyler studied classical/jazz music theory and audio recording/production on a full tuition scholarship at Azusa Pacific University (APU) in California. He decided to return to Canada to finish studying audio engineering at Number 9 Recording Studios in Toronto, and after graduating with honours, he traveled for two years as pianist and vocalist in the award-winning trio Carried Away. Tyler later completed his Bachelor of Music (Honours) from McMaster University and his Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto – OISE.
In between tours, television performances, songwriting and studio recording, Tyler began giving composition workshops relating classical music theory with contemporary popular styles for children and adults. His fun and engaging demonstrations have led to him being asked to speak throughout Canada with different music organizations, schools, and conservatories including Music for Young Children (MYC), the Canadian National Conservatory of Music (CNCM), Conservatory Canada, the Ontario Registered Music Teachers Association (ORMTA), the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM), and the Suzuki Association. Tyler continues to compose, arrange, produce, adjudicate at music festivals and lead workshops throughout Canada for music students, parents and teachers.
