Tyler has written for many mediums including film, opera, choir, orchestra, chamber and solo instruments, and electronics.
His choral work, Asperges Me, Domine, was recently chosen as the first prize of the 11th Busan Choral Festival and Competition's composition segment in Busan, South Korea.
"As the Busan Composition Competition much prefers artistically higher quality songs, so the judgement focused on it. The 1st place winner of 2015, 'Asperges Me' shows fine effects of choral sound, even though it has a wide voice range." - from the Judges of the Festival.
He was recently commissioned by the University of Pittsburg's Choir to compose a new work for choir and piano for March of 2016.
He is currently a doctoral candidate at the University of Georgia, pursuing a degree in music composition with a minor in music theory. His composition professors include Jesse Jones, Adrian Childs, Leonard V. Ball, Jr., Maria Grenfell, and Stephen Lias. He was a recipient of the HHSOM Outstanding Graduate Teaching Award in 2015 and was a member of the international award-winning University of Georgia Hodgson Singers.
