Starting his piano studies at the age of six and progressing quickly, Tyler Hay took up his place to study at the Purcell School for Young Musicians in 2007, studying under Tessa Nicholson. Receiving his undergraduate degree from the Royal Northern College of Music in 2016 and his postgraduate degree from the Royal College of Music in 2019, he has developed a reputation for combining accomplished technical ability with a delicate sensitivity.
His wide-ranging experience of performing includes UK performances at venues such as the Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall, the Southbank Centre's Purcell Room and the Queen Elizabeth Hall. Recent international appearances include performances in South Africa, Australia, Spain, Italy, Cyprus and Germany.
Significant awards include the Royal Northern College of Music's prestigious Gold Medal (2016), first prize in the Royal Overseas League Competition, Keyboard Section (2016) and first prize in the Liszt Society Competition (2016).
Also an acclaimed recording artist, Tyler is known for recording interesting and previously unrecorded music. Amongst these are recordings of John Ogdon's unpublished works (2018) and Kalkbrenner's Etudes Op. 143 on a modern pianoforte (2019), both released with Brilliant Classics. This interest in wide ranging repertoire and performance has also seen him improvise cocktail piano music internationally.
Away from the keyboard, Tyler is passionate about music education, teaching in the south-east of England as well as currently working on a digital education project which he hopes will be released in 2020.
