Groove 101

From the age of 2 years old, Tyree has developed a passion for people, rhythm, and music. As his mother embraced and nurtured his hidden talents and abilities, he began playing the drum set during their weekly church service. He was determined to get his chance to play a song with the band.

Tyree attended Paseo High School of Fine and Performing Arts in Kansas City, MO. There he was introduced to jazz music and began his own jazz combo called "Groove 101". Tyree has continued to share his musicals experiences through his jazz combo on Monday nights at the blue room jazz club in his hometown. The styles that he embraced to study varies from gospel, straight-ahead-jazz, rhythm and blues, afro-Cuban, salsa, reggae, funk and drum cadences.

Tyree made the decision to push his own musical creativity to new possibilities and to develop his own sound.
