About Us

The Teacher Zone with Chris and Tyler was created as a way to help other Music Teachers and Schools grow. 

Here we feature podcasts and video interviews from top thought leaders in music education and business.  It is our goal to help connect the music education community and enable all of us to grow our businesses, stay in the know, and access the greatest tips and tools available in our industry.

The In Between

Chris and Tyler’s musical journey began when they both were kids playing in bands and learning how to write songs.  Chris plays drums while Tyler is a guitar playing singer songwriter.  They both play in the band “The In Between” which won a national battle of the bands for car maker Scion and have had a song featured on A&E’s “The Beast”.
