COMMISSIONING A WORK

The commission project with Tyler to celebrate our band’s 75th Anniversary was a pure delight! He was communicative, professional and timely, thus creating a very collaborative relationship. Tyler was attentive to the type of music we wanted and even completed research to better understand the band’s background. His compositions are fresh, musical and exciting while providing many teaching opportunities for student growth. My students benefited so much from this! Win-Win-Win!
