Ty is a multi-instrumentalist and educator living in Brooklyn. He has been playing and composing music for twenty years, and teaching guitar for ten years. Over the past decade he has written, produced, and recorded a number of his own records, and toured extensively with a number of different bands. He has also composed professionally for various companies. His main instruments are guitar, bass, drums, and voice, and his focus has been primarily on rock, folk, pop, and experimental music.
Ty is adaptive in his teaching style. He works to get to know each student individually, to learn how to best match the lessons to their needs. Whenever he can, he prefers to interweave music theory into his lessons, to give the student a rich understanding of what is happening on a deeper level than merely memorizing and practicing. Ty primarily teaches guitar.
Ty leads Willan’s after-school guitar program at The Ecole School.
Ty teaches private lessons in guitar.
