Teaching since:

Located in the DC area.

I graduated from Howard University with a Bachelor in Music Education and am getting my graduate degree in Music Education from the University of Maryland.
My primary instrument is clarinet and euphonium but am familiar with most instruments at a beginner to intermediate level.
As a woodwind specialist, I have taught clarinet, flute and saxophone during summer camps and programs for multiple years.
I'm currently the clarinet technique teacher at Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, DC.

I have been knitting and crocheting for 12 years and have made a wide range of products from hair bows to sweaters.

I am patient and willing to teach all levels of students in a variety of subjects and am willing to cater the lessons to your needs.

We love Tyra. She teaches in a selective high school for the arts, so is used to getting the best out of kids. And I love that she comes to our home!

My ten year old says it was a great first lesson. “I learned how to play five notes. Tyra was nice and funny.”

Great 1st lesson! Tyra was very professional and had a good first interaction with my son. It’s also very clear she enjoys what she does.
