Hello my name is Tyreese. I'm originally from Harrington, DE. I'm a professional flautist located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I've played the flute for about 21 years. I hold a degree in Music Performance from Delaware State University. I plan on pursuing my Master's in Music Performance at Southeastern Louisiana University in the Fall of 2019. I've participated in various ensembles such as marching band, concert band, pep band, wind ensemble, orchestra, jazz band, etc... As your instructor, I will be able to transform you into a well-rounded musician. Practice is the key. I strive for excellence! My philosophy of music is, "Enhancing the minds of students through music". Let's make music! Are you ready???

I teach online and in-home lessons to students. I create an encouraging, fun, and focused lesson atmosphere. I assess a student’s readiness and ability. I teach weekly flute lessons as well as other woodwind instruments to students of all ages and ability levels (especially beginning and intermediate levels)  I'm flexible with my schedule academic school year and summer months.

Tyreese is super patient and thoughtful in his instruction and fine-tuning. Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor after a 30 year hiatus from an instrument that is fast becoming so dear to me once more!

Very good, very clear, very patient. I can actually make a sound out of the clarinet.

The teacher was wonderful. But the platforms connection was poor. Really enjoyed the lesson.

Tyreese is a great instructor. He understands what my needs are as a beginner, As an older adult I am learning how to study all over again. Tyreese is patient and giving me the confidence to be great at playing my flute. One of my many dream goals is learning the flute. You’re never to old to learn new things!

My daughter is 11 years old and just started playing the flute for band. She was struggling to keep up and getting frustrated. Started lessons with Tyreese and she has improved dramatically. What's more, he is very encouraging and helps her to believe in her potential. She looks forwards to the lesson weekly, and I would recommend Tyreese highly.

As usual it was a great lesson, guess what i have just learned to play the flute; actually play, thanks to none other than Tyreese and his tolerance with me, I think I am going to the street corner and belt out the one line that I learned. Wish me luck.
