Music classes and workshops

An experienced singer, piano teacher and vocal coach who will teach your child all of these skills.

Tatjana Grabow was born into a musical family - both of her parents were opera singers. They exposed her to music and therefore her ear was trained from an early age. Tatjana's voice was classically trained by her mother, Carla Pohl, as well as Ms Alma Oosthuizen, and she participated in workshops with Ms Mimi Coertzee and Mr Herman Le Roux.

She studied music @ Wits University where she specialised in voice and piano together with education. After she received her degree Tatjana taught music at various schools in the Johannesburg area. First as a class music teacher, and later teaching theory, singing and piano on an individual basis. Her qualifications are:

HDE-Degree(specialising in Music) with WITS.

WOWSA-(World Opera Workshop) Degree.

Tatjana has been a SACE-(South African Council for Educators) member since 07/Nov/2000.

Tatjana has been studying a psychology degree with UNISA and therefore believes her understanding and appreciation for individuals has developed even further.
Tatjana believes each individual is unique and needs their own personal approach.

Currently Tatjana teaches from home in her Music Studio. Her pupils get the chance to participate in 2 yearly concerts to show off their glorious talents. They also get the opportunity to shine in open mic concert evenings.

Tatjana also finds great pleasure in singing at corporate functions and would love to share her musical abilities with anyone who wants to learn more about music.

Specialising in genres such as Pop, Jazz, Classical, Musicals and Opera

Tatjana will assist your child in building up confidence, realising their talent and singing/piano techniques in general. She believes that breathing is the absolute foundation to singing and works with her pupils on breathing/diaphragm and vocal exercises. Stage performance and microphone techniques along with Diction/pronounciation exercises are equally important.
In addition,her pupils get the opportunity to learn to sing in any genre and to expand their vocal range.

Piano/keyboard classes evolve around: theory, ear training, Technical exercises and learning to sight-read. Tatjana will choose theory and piano lesson books for her pupils appropriate to their age group and either for beginners, intermediate or advanced pupils.

Music lessons can be taught in English, Afrikaans and/or German

Tatjana is fluent in all these languages.

Tatjana also specialises in performing singing evaluation classes to assess the musical vocal abilities of a new learner.
For more information regarding these assessments please contact Tatjana directly.

Furthermore, Tatjana assists learners in preparing for an important audition. Learner's would get the opportunity to attend masterclasses for the duration of 2 hours long at a time to prepare them for an audition.
For more information contact Tatjana directly.

Guitar lessons

Tatjana's music studio is now also offering guitar lessons!

Mr Faizel Boorany will be teaching guitar lessons in Tatjana's music studio!
Mr Boorany started playing guitar at the age of fourteen, initially without formal tuition but by ear and through improvising with other musicians in the U.K. where he was schooled in the mid 70's.

He became immersed in the folk, rock, fusion and pop music traditions among others of the time, but especially the blues, which was resurgent at the time there.

At twenty two he taught himself to read music notation, attaining a pass in Grade Five Theory and (Classical) Guitar Practical with merit in the same year through the Associated Board. He simultaneously then and thereafter for many years at the now defunct FUBA (Federated Union For Black Artists) opposite the then nascent Market Theatre, as well as the John Silver Guitar Studio in Parktown in the early 90's.

Mr Boorany has played and taught guitar for close on to forty five years now, in all idioms, including classical as well as and especially improvisational forms.

My 7 year old has been having singing lessons with Tatjana for about a year. She ALWAYS wants to go to her lesson and comes home happy, inspired and singing! The concerts have been a fabulous experience for her too. They require huge work and effort from Tatjana and we are extremely grateful. Tatjana has a way with children that one doesn't see everyday. Highly recommended!

My 8 year old daughter has been singing with Tatjana for about a year. She absolutely LOVES her lessons and is blossoming. She has a beautiful voice but is rather shy, but she sang in Tatjana's concert last year and is about to sing in her next one - and also sang for a family event. Tatjana is vibrant, fun, great with kids, and an excellent teacher. I would highly recommend her.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Tatjana for almost two years. We very happy with her progress and Tatjana's method of transferring and imparting the practical and theoretical knowledge is impressive. Our 8 year old is quite confident explaining musical notes and asking theoretical questions about the music, which I find really inspiring, and it's all thanks to Tatjana. I like the concerts too.

My 10 y.o. daughter Elena has been singing with Tatjana since 1 and a half years. Every Friday, when it is time to fetch her, she does not want to leave! She loves Tatjana and has discovered her wonderful voice with her. Her child oriented method is just the right way to get kids to loving and doing music. Elena has bloomed with Tatjana and I am so grateful for this. She knows how to get the best out of each child. We will miss her when we go back to Germany! Thanks Tatjana!

Tatjana is a wonderful music teacher. Her lessons are creative, fun, educational and nurturing. For singing, Tatjana works closely with my daughter, Leah, in a friendly and firm manner. They choose suitable songs together; then Tatjana guides Leah on one musical journey after another, teaching her what she needs to know about her own voice and each particular song. Leah is also learning to play the piano with Tatjana, and here again, Tatjana teaches with kindness and precision. I donít know anything about the technicalities of music and singing, and after each lesson, Leah explains these wonderful concepts to me, with great enthusiasm and understanding. I feel that Leah really grasps it and loves it, because Tatjana is such an engaging and fantastic teacher.

Tatjana is a patient, enthusiastic, caring and nurturing vocal coach and music teacher! She uplifts her students and brings out the best in them. Tat is very professional and skilled at what she does! Her techniques have stuck with me through out my singing career! She treats her students vocal chords with absolute care, teaching them the right breathing exercises and techniques. She gives her pupils wonderful opportunities to perform for an audience to gain confidence. I have always loved working with Tatjana because shes just extremely musical and is a beautiful person to work with! She is so down to earth and loves what she does! I am now 20 years old but started with Tat at 14 years old and I still continue to learn from her!! =)

What can I say! Tatjana is that gifted teacher who manages to be cool, fun and really instill confidence in her pupils while still actually teaching them the technically correct way to sing and play piano. My 9 year old is thriving with her.

My daughter, Tiffany Arendse, joined Tatjana's music Studio in March 2012 with the objective of learning to play piano. Tiffany looks forward to each lesson with great excitement and believes that she has the coolest music teacher. Tatjana picked up on her singing abilities and is dedicating some time to give her some voice training too. How`s that for the coolest music teacher. I would gladly recommend her service to all kids who are interested in music.
