Myles Tyrrell

From Gosport, Hampshire, Myles Tyrrell is a classically trained pianist and organist. Discovering a passion for music making from an early age, Myles studied piano, clarinet and in the years that followed, Myles began organ lessons with Geoffrey Holroyde (ARCO) and became the organ scholar at Holy Trinity Church, Gosport on the newly restored Handel organ, whilst accompanying various choirs around the town, and getting involved with local art projects. 

 

Moving to Southampton in 2014 to read French and Music, studying piano under the tutelage of Duncan Honeybourne (HonRBC, tutor at the Royal Academy of Music Junior Academy) and David Owen Norris (FSA, professor at the Royal College of Music). Myles began working freelance in the city, playing for St. Deny's and St. Barnabas Church, and started teaching piano and music theory. He moved to France as part of the Erasmus Project in 2017. Whilst there, he was tutored on the organ at La Cathédrale de Rennes, whilst accompanying the university mixed and all-female choirs, co-leading local ensembles,  specialising in piano pedagogy for adults and children. Myles also specialised in medieval musicology (organum de Notre Dame), whilst also undertaking courses in translation for the European Commission. This tied in nicely with his performance major of French women composers, specialising in the works of Lili Boulanger, Cécile Chaminade, and Louise Farrenc.

 

Upon his return to the UK, Myles became the Michael James Organ Scholar at Romsey Abbey and the Southampton University Organ Scholar at St. Michael's Church, and started to set up his private tuition studio in earnest, whilst starting to perform in the UK  for private events. 

After graduating, Myles started working for the Southampton Music Service as a peripatetic piano and clarinet teacher, whilst teaching freelance in and around the city. At the age of 22, Myles became the Director of Music at St. James Church West End, and joined the committee for the Winchester and District Association of Organists. He was the Conductor for The Woodside Singers from 2019-2020 before the pandemic hit. After the lockdowns had ended, Myles started working with the Welsh National Opera's Youth and Community Outreach in Southampton, encouraging young children to take their first steps into singing and story-telling through music, to rebuild their confidence and sense of self whilst exposing them to the world of opera.  He also works as a visiting accompanist and répétiteur for WNO across the UK.

In January 2022 he stepped down from his directorship at St. James, in order to devote more time to the ever-growing private studio (which now sits at a membership of ~60 people of all ages and abilities).  Myles performs regularly around the UK for a mixture of private functions and concerts. Myles has performed at a variety of venues such as SS Great Britain, the Royal Albert Hall, Turner Sims, Thornden Hall,  and surprisingly, in a field surrounded by cows for a rural wedding (they are a fan of moo-sic, after all...).

 

He also regularly supplies workshops and masterclasses to local ensembles such as Wessex Chorus. Myles is in high demand as an educator, teaching both across the UK and internationally to students in the US, Italy and France. Pedagogically, Myles specialises in working with neurodivergent students (ADHD & Autism) and students that suffer from performance anxiety. Myles runs regular workshops for piano (and occasionally organ) for his students, with end of term concerts and other events to help pianists and musicians meet up and play together in a musical, supportive community. 

 

Myles is an active member of the Musician's Union and an avid supporter of Music for Youth.

TESTIMONIALS

"Being a total beginner to both the piano and reading music, Myles is a real professional and really cares about his students progress. Not only does his teaching style feel very natural, the without fail lesson notes I get each week are incredibly valuable. I’d highly recommend Myles to anyone wanting to learn or progress in piano."

Dan W., Southampton
