$150 - $1000 per event
I'm an international award-winning classical guitarist, composer/arranger, and educator currently living in Boston, MA. I graduated with my Master of Music degree from the New England Conservatory under the tutelage of legendary maestro Eliot Fisk. I primarily play solo music from Bach to Spanish guitar to bossa nova to my own arrangements of the Beatles and everything in between. I also have several chamber music groups available for hire including my violin/flute/cello & guitar duo, jazz trio (guitar, upright bass, and drums), or string quartet (guitar, violin, viola, cello). I can arrange any special song requests either for solo guitar or any of the previous groups mentioned. Feel free to contact me anytime about performing at your wedding, private party, or corporate event!

Biography:
Hailed by NBC-5 as a guitarist who “…can make the guitar sing like it was invented to be in his hands,” native Oregonian Tye Austin made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2013 after winning first prize in a series of national and international music competitions merely five years after beginning his formal music studies at Southern Oregon University at the age of 18. He's recently been invited to make his Royal Albert Hall debut in London, England on December 14, 2016 after winning first place in the Grand Prize Virtuoso International Music Competition. He has performed with Grammy-winning musicians such as Sharon Isbin, Eliot Fisk, and Bela Fleck, and he's been interviewed on National Public Radio. Tye is also an accomplished composer/arranger dedicated to expanding the guitar repertoire. The 2016-17 concert season will see the premiere of new chamber music Tye composed for the Boston Guitar Orchestra and his newly-formed Back Bay String Quartet. Thanks to a generous patronage and private scholarship, Tye graduated from the New England Conservatory with his Master of Music degree under the tutelage of legendary maestro Eliot Fisk (the last student of Andres Segovia). In addition to maintaining his active performance schedule, Tye teaches guitar lessons for a local non-profit called Kithara Project, which provides guitar pedagogy to Boston's low-income youth, as his way of "giving back" to the community. He plays a customized 2015 Steve Connor Guitar from Cape Cod, MA.
