Tanya Tkachenko has been a faculty member of The Royal Conservatory of Music since 1966 and has sat on the Board of Examiners since 1968. Over one hundred of her students have completed the Conservatory's Certificate Program, obtaining the ARCT diploma in solo performer and teacher categories. Her students take a keen interest in their studies, and regularly win awards and scholarships at competitive music events. Many of them go on to continue their studies at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Music.

Tanya started studying music in Kyiv, Ukraine at the Lysenko Special School for Talented Children. After continuing her studies in Germany she moved to Canada, where her teachers were Boris Berlin and Pierre Souvairan. She is a graduate of The Royal Conservatory and an alumnus at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Music. Tanya has toured Canada, the United States, Europe, and Asia as an examiner, adjudicator, clinician, and performer.

Tanya has since moved from The Royal Conservatory to her private teaching studio at home. She continues to offer piano lessons to serious students with a strong interest in music. For more information, please call her at the number listed in the top right corner.
