She was admitted to London’s Royal Academy of Music (Junior Department) and, at age seven, she recorded Massenet’s “Meditation” for an installation art exhibition by Turner Prize-winner, Gillian Wearing. Tatjana lived in Singapore for three years and during this time, aged 10, she enjoyed her first solo opportunity with orchestra at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory where she played Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto.

In 2008, she gained entry to the Yehudi Menuhin School, studying with Professor Natasha Boyarsky and, in 2010, won a first prize at the Andrea Postacchini International Violin Competition, Italy. When, at age 15, Tatjana was accepted as a pupil to Professor Boris Kuschnir, she divided her time between Vienna, for her musical studies at Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst, Graz and continuing academic studies at home in Surrey.

Her extensive concerto repertoire is complemented with frequent travel to International Music Festivals, including The Verbier Festival Academy (Switzerland), IMS Prussia Cove (UK), Four Seasons Chamber Music Festival (USA) and Ravinia Steans Music Institute (USA).
