Tyler Hartley began harp lessons at the age of six. Throughout middle school and high school, Tyler pursued a variety of performance experiences, including 12 years in the Atlanta Harp Ensemble and four years with the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra. She began her collegiate studies at the Eastman School of Music, where she was a recipient of the Eileen Malone Scholarship and studied under Kathleen Bride, and later attended Kennesaw State University, where she was 2011’s Concerto Competition winner with the Boieldieu Harp Concerto. Tyler holds a bachelor's degree in Music Performance

An avid performer, Tyler serves as principal harpist for the Gwinnett Ballet Theatre Orchestra, principal harpist for the Georgia Philharmonic Orchestra and second harpist for the Georgia Symphony Orchestra. In addition, she frequently freelances with various regional groups including the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, Atlanta Philharmonic Orchestra, North Georgia Symphony Orchestra, South Florida Symphony Orchestra, Coastal Symphony of Georgia, and the Atlanta Wind Symphony.

Many of her fondest musical experiences have come from attending classical music festivals, including Eastern Music Festival, Saratoga Harp Colony, Miami Summer Music Festival, and Round Top Festival and has spent several summers at the Young Artist's Harp Seminar, first as a student and later as a theory instructor and counselor.

Tyler teaches private lessons on both lever and pedal harp to students of all ages from her home in Woodstock Georgia and at the Atlanta Harp Center in Alpharetta Georgia. Tyler's students perform twice a year in recitals featuring solo and harp ensemble music.
