During his time at Yale, he studied with internationally renowned tenor James Taylor.

Solo performance highlights include Handel’s Messiah with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, Handel’s Messiah and Bach’s St. Matthew Passion (evangelist) with the Messiah Festival of the Arts, Handel’s Messiah with the American Baroque Orchestra, Mozart’s Requiem with the Yale Recital Chorus, Bach’s BWV 182 and 211 with Mountainside Baroque, Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 with Yale Schola Cantorum under the baton of David Hill, Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with Yale Camerata, Bach’s Missa in G minor conducted by Masaaki Suzuki, Arvo Pärt’s Passio (Pilate) with Yale Schola Cantorum, Bach’s BWV 10 conducted by Matthew Halls, Stravinsky’s Les Noces with Yale Camerata, and Haydn’s Creation (Uriel) with the Yale Glee Club conducted by Jeff Douma.

Tyler currently resides in Bergen, Norway and sings first tenor in Bergen’s professional ensemble Edvard Grieg Kor. An avid chamber musician, Tyler has worked with numerous professional ensembles, including GRAMMY nominated Seraphic Fire, Santa Fe Desert Chorale, The Thirteen, Spire Chamber Ensemble, Kinnara Ensemble and Vox Humana.

Her concert engagements in Norway include annual recitals for a week as Artist in Residence at Edvard Grieg museum (2014- 2017), concert series in Kabuso Concert Hall, Lofoten Cathedral, Stavanger Cathedral, the Grieg Hall, and several music societies throughout Norway. She has also taken part the International Grieg in Bergen Series with solo performances and chamber music since 2010.

From 2006 to 2014, Oda has participated at the annual masterclasses of the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra’s Piano Festival and Summer Academy, and played for renown musicians such as Menahem Pressler, Marios Papadopoulos, Gary Graffmann and Vladimir Krainev.

“ A pianist with great sensitivity and lovely tone (…) She has the touch to render the orchestral textures vividly and the technique to tackle the ferociously difficult piano writing with ease” Marios Papadopoulos, director Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra, 2017

“I felt cosseted and highly entertained in their hands, not only with playing of the surest unison and harmony, but with the palpable joy and fun of their music-making(…)” Des Hutchinson at Musicweb-international.com, May 2017, Review Volt&Potenza duo CD “Khoreia”. www.odavolt.com
