From elementary groups to universities (and everything in between),
I have loved collaborating in over 35 commissions with ensembles around the U.S.
Options for every director!
Never commissioned a work before? Not sure how the process works? Not sure how much it costs? That's ok! I am happy to share information with you and answer any questions you may have!
Customizable & collaborative!
Every commissioned project is a special one. We can create a customized commission experience that suits the needs of your ensemble or organization. Tyler also offers Zoom sessions for ensembles interested in a more collaborative experience.
