Tad Winklarz Music
I received formal training at The Conservatory of Music in Poland.
Toured as a singer internationally with the award winning Gdansk Medical Academy Choir performing a cappella music, oratorio, gospel as well as various other musical styles.
I held the position of accompanist, vocal coach and performer at the Gdansk National Theatre.
In late 1984 I became a member of Chalk Circle as a songwriter, keyboard and saxophone player. The band recorded two platinum and one certified gold album. We landed a Japanese and German record deal and toured internationally as a headliner and shared the stage with bands such as Crowded House, Tears for Fears, Rush, The Waterboys,Tom Cochrane, Kim Mitchell, The Tragically Hip, Brian Setzer, Jeff Healey, Billy Bragg, Michelle Shocked and many others. We produced eight music videos in support of the singles.
In 2006 Universal Music Canada released a Best of Chalk Circle compilation album. The band re-united for a sold out performance in Toronto in 2006.
Over the last 25 years I have worked on numerous projects including
feature films, award winning documentaries, and television series.
My work includes the position of composer, music director, producer and sound engineer.
I train and prepare piano students for the Royal Conservatory of Music examinations, auditions for University level music programs, piano competitions, festivals and various recitals.
I have mentored hundreds of young musicians and shared my knowledge and experience of the music industry.
I'm currently creating a music book of classical compositions for piano and as always writing new music in various genres.
