Tyler CruiseTyler Cruise is a clarinet/alto saxophone student with Bart Yates at the Marion West Music Conservatory. He has studied with Bart for over 3 years. Bart nominated Tyler for Musician of the Month because Tyler has worked very hard and earned first chair at NEIBA honor band last November. Tyler was also nominated for IBA honor band (which is a select ensemble of Iowa’s finest eighth grade musicians) to play later this spring. Tyler’s musical goal is to become an All State musician and learn another instrument. His advice to other musicians is that practice makes perfect and to have fun!

Tyler’s favorite thing about playing music is hearing a song he has been working on for a long time come together perfectly. He participates in concert and jazz bands at Oak Ridge Middle School, where he is in the 8th grade. Some of his other hobbies besides music include reading, traveling, swim team, and tennis. His favorite music to enjoy is from musicals.

Congratulations Tyler!
