Of all the voice teachers I’ve worked with, Tyler has empowered me with the most comprehensive knowledge of my instrument and the truest insight into all that it can do. So much of singing (and speaking) is intuitive; Tyler has helped me dispel the ambiguities in favor of a kinesthetic awareness that enables higher, healthier levels of control and versatility. He doesn’t just throw you exercises or adjustments didactically - he’s committed to exploring their effects with you, collaborating on an understanding and a language that corresponds with your goals and the nuances of your unique voice."

Tyler's expertise and compassion are a winning combination and make his technique easy to metabolize. From troubleshooting to general technique maintenance, Tyler is my first phone call. I can't recommend him highly enough!"

 Tyler’s knowledge of- and proficiency with- the instrument, combined with his many teaching strategies, makes him a true technician. But his kindness, patience, understanding, and communication make him a master at what he does. He's also one of the funniest and most delightful people, able to transform any challenge into something fun and accessible."

I started taking voice lessons with Tyler to get back in healthy vocal shape after not taking lessons for about 5 years. As a lifelong singer with many beloved and highly regarded teachers, I can say that Tyler is truly excellent, and is the one I choose to work with moving forward. He is impressively knowledgeable about vocal technique and able to tailor his instruction to my individual needs as a singer. I feel safe making new sounds, learning, and having fun with him guiding me. I always feel like I am better able to navigate my voice after each lesson with him, and trust him to safely push me to be a stronger, more confident singer as well."

As someone who has experienced vocal trauma and surgery, I’ve been pretty protective of who I allow to tinker with my instrument. In less than 5 lessons, Tyler was able to pinpoint key, conditioned bad habits that have made it difficult for me to produce healthy singing without force, and give me the tools necessary to retrain my muscles and my brain to keep it consistent. His knowledge of multiple techniques has broadened my skillset and given me a new color palette to paint (sing) with  in any style with ease. And most importantly, Tyler has  provided me with a new confidence in my voice... I don’t feel the need to add extra weight, or color, or whatever, because I know now that my sound is magnificent as it is. I couldn’t be more grateful for his help in discovering a vocal freedom I didn’t even know I had. Oh, and did I mention that Tyler is an amazing, hilarious, and brilliant human being!?! Just had to put that out there."

I’ve worked with Tyler for about six months, and already have had more “light bulb” moments than all my previous years of voice training. He has helped me to gain a deeper understanding of my voice on an anatomical level; as a professional dancer and kinesthetic learner, I’ve found his approach to be especially effective. I’ve always considered myself a soprano and working on my “mix/belt” comes with a lot of vulnerability and self-consciousness. However, Tyler’s incredible knowledge, patience, and goofiness have helped me feel comfortable experimenting with “belty” sounds that are rooted in awareness and are uniquely my own. It takes a wonderful teacher (and human) to be able to create a judgement-free space for that process. Tyler is smart, attentive, and a blast to work with, and his passion for vocal health and individuality will keep me coming back! Plus, he’s funny AF.

Tyler is a consummate professional. He is proficient and insightful, and he has a masterful approach to conveying instruction. He is constructive and kind - he knows how to boost your confidence by being complimentary and supportive, guiding you to prove to yourself what you’re capable of achieving as a singer. He will give you tangible tools for improvement, helping you to cultivate the lasting effects of an outstanding vocal education. I am extremely grateful for his time and expertise, and I couldn’t recommend his training more.”
