About Tyler Boehmer

Internationally acclaimed for his keyboard abilities, Tyler Boehmer carries much promise as a future organ virtuoso. His studies began with piano at age four in Cardston, Alberta, Canada. After moving to Utah, his fascination with the organ took over, and he started organ studies at age fourteen.

It was not long before Boehmer received international attention as an organ performer. In 2011, he was the runner-up in the Regional Competition for Young Organists (RCYO) chapter level competition, sponsored by the American Guild of Organists. Two years later, Boehmer appeared on the Tantara record label as organ accompanist for the BYU Men’s Chorus, under the direction of Professor Rosalind Hall. In 2015, Boehmer earned first place at the RCYO West Region competition. The following year, he was featured as a Rising Star at the 2016 AGO National Convention in Houston. Shortly after his competition successes, he held a recital in Werdau, Germany, in which the Werdau Freie Press heralded him as a “highly accomplished organist.”

After graduating with his bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University, Boehmer moved       to the University of Kansas to study with Dr. Jim Higdon. He plans to obtain a doctoral degree and become a university professor.
