An experienced singer, piano teacher and vocal coach who will teach your child all of these skills. Specialising also in guitar, violin and clarinet lessons.

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.

Tatjana will assist your child in building up confidence, realising their talent and singing/piano techniques in general.

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.

Tatjana is fluent in all these languages.

At the music studio, it’s like a second home. Tatjana teaches with so much patience. She is so sweet and very smart, I love my lessons with her. She doesn’t pressure us however we have goals together and she makes me smile and be happy with what I’ve done.

Our kids Stella and Jack have been going to Tatjana for singing and piano lessons since the beginning of the year and they both love their lessons. The studio is a wonderful, happy place for them to learn, grow and discover music. Tatjana is a fantastic, patient and supportive teacher who inspires them. They always look forward to their lessons each week and we can highly recommend Tatjana’s music studio.

My daughter Kirsty goes to Tatjana for singing lessons. She is such a special teacher and has always been there for Kirsty. She can’t say enough great things about Tatjana. She has grown in confidence since attending her classes. There are teachers and then there are one of a kind like teachers like Tatjana.

Our daughter has been going to Tatjana's studio for a couple of years now. Piano and singing with Tatjana are the two extramurals she never ever wants to quit, The second she enters the studio she is all music, and the outside world just fades away. A magic place! Tatjana is an equally inspiring and patient teacher, really one of a kind.

Tatjana's Music Studio is one of the most amazing places I go to. In the four years, I have been going to her studio has not only made my confidence grow but has become something of a safe haven for me in that it has become my comfort zone. Where I can talk about the thing that are bothering me or get things off my chest and Tatjana just seems to know exactly what to say or do to make me feel better. Not only is the aura of the studio amazing but Tatiana is also just an amazing teacher and person overall. She knows how to make people laugh, and feel safe and confident. Tatjana also never forces anyone to do anything that they don't want to. She is great with kids and teenagers of all ages. She is one of the best music teachers I have ever had and I have had a lot. I look forward to my music lesson every week because even if I am tired or stressed Tatjana and her studio just make it all fade away and I always come out feeling happy and excited for my next lesson. Tatjana has made such a great impact on my life that I will never forget.
