Outside his primary role as Lecturer of Piano at AppState’s Hayes School of Music, Tyler is actively engaged in the Boone community as the pianist at First Presbyterian Church and choral director at the Temple of the High Country. In addition to his varied career as teacher, tuner, and performer, Tyler enjoys adapting to a variety of musical styles including classical, jazz, pop, sacred, and klezmer.
