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.
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.
Please say you saw this on Jozikids.

My 14 year old has really enjoyed five years with Tatjana. She has learned the correct way to use her voice and has grown in confidence. Tatjana has a wonderful way with children of all ages but she also has solid voice and music training skills.

My daughter absolutely loves attending singing lessons, she learns so much and has fun at the same time. She always walks out of her lessons with a smile on her face. Tatjana is great with kids and as a real talent herself, I would highly recommend her music studio 😊

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.
