Tyler Hughes holds a bachelors from Stephen F. Austin State University and a Masters Degree from Texas Tech University. He studied under Dr. Stephen Lias during his undergrad and continues his education at Texas Tech University under the tutelage of Dr. Peter Fischer in pursuit of a Doctorate degree of Musical Arts. He has amassed an extensive body of work as well as improved his compositional skills. While studying, he is also a working composer, having commissions to write music. He is an active member of the National Association of Composer, USA (NACUSA) and of Society of Composers (SCI), and has had music performed at three Texas chapter NACUSA conferences. The most recent of these performances garnered him the prize for Best Undergraduate Composition. Tyler’s plans include obtaining a doctoral degree in music. After that, Tyler plans to teach music composition and theory at the college level while continuing to compose.
Thanks so much and cheers for having me!
Thanks for a warm welcome, Tyler! I am just about to add some info to my page. All creative best!
Thanks for your welcome message and also your doubts regarding my status as a composer or not. I am not trying to waste anybody's time and certainly not using this forum cheaply. Perhaps I was not clear on my intention:
My main purpose is to share and hear others music. The difficulty of considering myself or not a true "composer" is more of a philosophical kind, I think it will keep me always wondering and uneasy. This question has not stopped me from composing, and the result I have just uploaded to my profile.
If however, to be part of this forum, I need to have already renown music either sold or used in a famous project, I am afraid I have none. I am optimistically hoping to though, and that is why I registered here to begin with =)
Cheers from Ireland!
Thanks for your welcome. Just been reading your orchestral tutorial, some very good and useable advice ;-)
