“I’m thrilled at this incredible opportunity,” says Tyler S. Grant, internationally recognized composer, arranger, conductor, and clinician, as well as owner of Tyler S.

After serving as a middle/high school band director, this mission has evolved into offering publications that engage and inspire students and educators in new ways. With Alfred Music’s passion for and support of music education, this partnership will allow my publications to reach classrooms and concert halls around the globe.”
