Band History:
Tatiana has been making music as long as she can remember. She started playing piano at the age of four, singing at the age of nine, and composing at the age of ten. Her first piece “Arabian Nights” was performed with choreography at the elementary school. During her high school years, she won “ The 1981 October Prize in Composition “ for the city of Belgrade, Serbia. She was admitted to the University of Arts in Belgrade in 1983, majoring in composition / theory and piano. She then completed her BFA in 1988. Very soon after graduation she received a letter from Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, with an offer for a full scholarship. She successfully completed her Master’s Degree in 1992, majoring in Composition. Her pieces were performed in Yugoslavia and Pittsburgh at that time. “Weaving a Nightmare”, her piece for chamber orchestra, was performed at the Fulton Theatre in Pittsburgh. Her symphonic piece “Interstice” was performed by Carnegie-Mellon University Orchestra at Carnegie Hall in Pittsburgh.

She continued her studies at the University of Pittsburgh in 1995, pursuing her Doctoral Degree in composition and theory. She studied composition with renowned composers such as: Leonardo Balada, Eric Moe, Matthew Rosenblum, Anne Le Baron, Paul Chihara and David Keberle. She also studied voice with Charlotte Black, and piano with Natasha Snitkovski and Hanna Li. Many of her works were performed as part of the “Life on the Edge” Concert Series. She received her Ph.D. in 2001.

Tatiana Grecic has been teaching piano, composition and theory, basic musicianship, harmony, counterpoint, piano ensemble, chamber music, orchestration, improvisation, notation, voice, and many other subjects, for over 17 years. She taught at Carnegie-Mellon University, University of Pittsburgh, Chatham College, Community College of Allegheny County, and Bermuda Conservatory of Music. She was also involved in musical productions at Pittsburgh Playhouse Theatre in Pittsburgh.

Since 1991 she has been exploring the sound of pop, new age and rock. She was involved as a singer, keyboard player and a songwriter, performing with a lot of bands in Pittsburgh including: Zee Steel, Seventh House, Sweet Madness (an original band), Sanxtion and Side Effect (cover band). Her music has been influenced by many styles: new-age, pop, rock and classical (especially impressionism). Many of her pieces and songs were performed in three countries: United States, Serbia and Bermuda. She received a great response to her music and great press releases in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette and the Royal Gazette (Bermuda). She recorded and produced five CD’s with her music through Core-Age Records.
