I have a broad understanding of music. I am well versed in saxophone, jazz, music theory, composition, and arranging. Aside from my experience in all these fields, I have a curriculum that offers students a skill tree. The skill tree both cleary documents what students has learned and what the next steps are in the student's path. This also gives students choices in their education. I am all about students being able to provide their own input into their education. My job is to set expectations and guide students through their musical path.

About Zach T.

Hello, I'm Zach Tyler, a professional saxophone player, composer, and arranger. Right now I am offering lessons to anyone with a desire to begin or further their musical path.
I am a huge believer in music being a core part of the human experience which is why I have cultivated a curriculum that works for anyone of any level. Aside from becoming your guide, I provide a skill tree. A skill tree will precicely show you where you are at and what the next steps are. This creates YOUR involvement in YOUR education.
Whether it be saxophone, theory, composition, arranging, or integrations of each, I will guide you through your musical journey and provide clear and fun instruction.
I started playing the saxophone twelve years ago and never stopped. All along the way I studied with different private instructors. I also studied music at Middle Tennessee State University and earned my Bachelor's degree there. There I honed my craft and studied with some of the best musicians in the area.
My experience as a musician ranges widely. For the last four years I have been a working musician in the Nashville area. During this time I have played, recorded, written, and arranged music with many artists and bands including Duffy Jackson, former drummer for Count Basie.
Together we will set you on the right path as a musician. I can't wait to work with you.
