Musical Director Len Tyler started his career in military music. As a musician and director of music he travelled extensively and took part in many state ceremonial occasions at national and international level. On leaving the military in he retrained as a Kodály musicianship trainer qualifying with Colourstrings International, the British Kodály Academy, and Trinity College of Music in London. He is now best know for his work with early childhood and primary music education, although he does apply the Kodály approach to other areas of his work including instrumental teaching and working with bands and ensembles. As a result of his extensive studies while in the military, he is able to play over 20 different instruments, including all brass and woodwind and most stringed instruments.
Len lives near Camberley with his wife Rose and their two dogs. His two grown up daughters are regular and welcome visitors. He also devotes time to "Da Capo Winds", a community concert band which he conducts as well as being an active member of two further wind bands and a brass quintet (5 Ts Brass). A number of ex pupils from the Len Tyler Music School have found their way into Da Capo Winds
