Teaching since:

A lifelong student of music, I took up guitar at a young age. While studying Business during my first few years at the University of Toledo, I played all throughout NW Ohio with psychedelic rock group, Indigo. These experiences with music lead me to the UT Jazz program which I joined and eventually earned a Bachelor of Music (Jazz Performance) in 2015. I now play solo and with groups The M.A.R.S. Quartet, Dragon Wagon, The Sugar Snaps, and Tyler Aukerman Trio at many different venues throughout Ohio and Michigan. I have taught guitar lessons privately since 2010. I am also an endorsed artist through GHS strings and Rocktron electronics. I am always looking for new students of any and all skill levels. Playing an instrument is such a rewarding adventure regardless of whether you are trying to learn a few chords or you want to dive deep into music theory and reading music. Both are equally meaningful! I am confident that I can help you acquire a better understanding of the language of music and the guitar!

My son Emery currently takes lessons with Tyler. The first lesson Emery went to he couldn't even hold the guitar! Tyler has always been very patient with Emery but also holds him accountable so he makes progress. Tyler has been a perfect fit for our son and I highly recommend him to anyone!
Tyler is very professional and dependable and always works with our crazy schedule! Thanks Tyler for your hard work and dedication to our son!
