About this pro

I love seeing my students get excited to learn. I love teaching and passing my knowledge onto those that are seeking to learn. Lessons with me are individually tailored to each and every student from complete beginners to gigging professionals.

I have been teaching for nearly 5 years both privately and in the Northshore Public School system as a woodwinds assistant. I hold a BA in music and a minor in audio recording/engineering. I have also studied with many teachers around the Pacific Northwest and beyond including Chad Lefkowitz-Brown (Taylor Swift's previous saxophone player), Greg Metcalf, Mark Taylor, and Mike Allen. I currently study with Steve Kortyka (Lady Gaga's saxophone player). I have spent many years playing in professional bands and have been on numerous recordings and am currently an endorsing artist for Claude Lakey Mouthpieces.

    He is fantastic. English is my second language. Tyler explained musical words easily to me. We learned over Google Hangouts. And, he would show me how to play and he corrected my playing. And he was patient and friendly.

    Tyler is a great instructor and my daughter LOVES her lessons. He has been fantastic both before and during COVID. He is responsive to requests and has a true passion for teaching


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Assess what they want out of lessons and well as their particular learning style and build from there. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been teaching privately for nearly 5 years. I also work in the Northshore Public School system as a woodwinds instructional assistant at Skyview Middle School. I hold a BA in music and a minor in audio recording/engineering from Western Washington University. I have played in many professional gigging bands and still do to this day. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My rates are as follows:

30 minutes - $40

45 minutes - $50

60 minutes - $60

How did you get started teaching?

I got started teaching by giving informal lessons to friends and other people in the music program at Western Washington University. From that point, I knew I really enjoyed teaching and decided to get hooked up with a music school once I moved back down to the Seattle area. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with people as young as 4th grade to people that are retired.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently, I had a talk with a few of my students about Call and Response in music. Nearly 100% of music that anyone will hear is based on a Call and Response formula. One student, in particular, was very excited when we were talking about this. Seeing that level of excitement and enthusiasm is contagious, it gives me true fulfillment. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would tell them to find someone that they feel compatible with. Make sure that the teacher you are considering is willing to work with whatever learning style suits them. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Are you willing to devote the time that is needed to start playing an instrument? Outside practice on a consistent basis is key to progressing. 

What do you hope to get out of taking lessons? Any specific goals?

Music is a long-term commitment, so be sure that it is something you want to do. (:
