Biography

Tyler Jones (b. 1993) is an American student and composer.

A versatile musician with interests ranging from classical repertoire to world musics, jazz, popular genres, and the avant-garde, Mr. Jones is currently a doctoral student in composition at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, studying with Laura Schwendinger. He holds a master’s degree in composition and a bachelor’s degree in music theory, both from The University of Alabama. His teachers at Alabama included Amir Zaheri, composition; Blake Richardson, conducting; Tim Feeney, percussion; and Thomas Robinson, music theory research and methods.

Exploring intriguing rhythmic-metric structures and earthy, evocative colors, Tyler’s work is concerned with community, perspective, and sound behavior within a given space.

Recent work includes a performance of his wind ensemble work Reflections (2019) at Carnegie Hall (February 2020) and a collaboration with the violinist Davis Brooks, who recorded Tyler’s five- movement suite Solitude for the solo album Early Musings: New Music for Violin.
