Composer | Clarinetist | Musician | Advocate
Tyler Mazone is a deaf and neurodivergent bass clarinetist and composer from Michigan. He is working towards a Doctorate in Composition at Michigan State University and is a graduate of there and the Crane School of Music. Tyler advocates for accessibility in music in small and large ensembles alike by molding his work for the performers and educators he composes for. Something Tyler enjoys is actively being a part of new clarinet consortiums. His commissions and performances have included The _____ Experiment, Diversify the Stand, The Royal Irish Academy of Music, the Crane Bands, Michigan State University Bands and Orchestras, Christopher Keach, Major Fifth Music, and Jen Oliverio. Tyler is also published on his website and with various publishers such as CAMCo and Randall Standridge Music. Outside of composition, you'll find Tyler hiking, reading a book, listening to music, or playing video games!
