In 2005, Tyler Ogilvie received his undergraduate degree in music education from Ithaca College, after which he served the public schools of New Jersey and Connecticut. In 2008, he returned to his alma mater to pursue graduate studies in horn performance (M.M., 2010).

Ogilvie serves on the music faculties of Susquehanna University and Dickinson College, teaching horn and chamber music. During summers, he instructs horn at the Susquehanna University Wind Ensemble Institute as well as the Ithaca College Summer Music Academy. Ogilvie is principal horn in the Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes, where he has appeared as a featured soloist. In addition to his freelance performances with regional orchestras and ensembles throughout New York and Pennsylvania, Ogilvie regularly performs with Symphoria (Syracuse, NY).

As a composer, Ogilvie's works range from traditional styles to more experimental, electroacoustic pieces utilizing sound effect processors, pre-recorded soundtracks, and visual multimedia (www.tyviemusic.com). He specializes in bringing his own brand of music and visual art to youthful audiences, having presented at schools throughout New York and Pennsylvania. Several of his works were featured in performances at the 48th International Horn Symposium. The aim of his music is to make cross-curricular connections to the sciences, math, nature, history, and visual arts.

In 2016, he was awarded composition grants from the Society for New Music in Syracuse, N.Y. as well as the Meir Rimon Commissioning Assistance Fund, courtesy of the International Horn Society. Ogilvie's primary teachers include Alexander Shuhan and Edward Albinski.
