About Tyler Minkewicz
Get to know Tyler Minkewicz
I began my musical journey at the age of six when I was gifted my first guitar. Since then, I have been trained on both acoustic and electric guitar, piano, as well as trumpet.
I am a proud alumni of the Austintown Fitch Marching Band, where I played trumpet for four years. I was first chair in the school's Symphonic Band and have various awards from OMEA Competitions.
During my four years in the Fitch Band, I had the opportunity to honor Veterans by playing Taps and service hymns at multiple ceremonies, parades and special events.
After graduation, I began a career in EMS and the Fire Service. Since then, I have played professionally at firefighter memorials and funerals.
While working throughout the Pandemic, I honed my guitar, bass and drum skills. I also began to write and record my own music. This opened me up to the world of music/audio technology.
I attended YSU's Dana School of Music in 2021 to study Music Education.
I am currently working towards my Paramedic licensure while pursuing my passion for music and service here at Music and Arts.
I am proud to serve the citizens of my community in whatever fashion they may need. Whether it's your heart strings, or guitar strings; I got you covered.
