Tatjana Dravenau began her solo piano studies with Till Engel at the Folkwang-Hochschule in Essen and graduated with distinction from Richard McMahon's class at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff. She deepened her repertoire as an accompanist with Friedemann Berger at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich. Parallel to her artistic training, she obtained a Diploma in Music Education in Essen and a Master of Arts/Music Education at the Cologne University of Music and Dance. Her doctoral studies in music education are supervised by Peter Röbke at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna and supported by a scholarship from the Gisela and Peter W. Schatt Foundation.
Her piano playing has been honored with the German Schubert Society Prize for Lied Accompaniment, the Prize for Piano Accompaniment and for Piano Solo of the John Ireland Society London as well as the Lawrence Davies Memorial and the Julian Jacobson Award.
As top of her year, she represented her college in a concert with Simon Rattle at Birmingham Symphony Hall. Since 2016, she has been the official piano accompanist for the vocal participants in the International Robert Schumann Competition for Piano and Voice in Zwickau.

Tatjana Dravenau develops, performs and conducts concert programs in which songs and solo works as well as poetry and prose are linked by a common theme. She has performed at the Schumann Houses in Zwickau, Leipzig, Düsseldorf and Bonn, the Bürgermeisterhaus in Essen, the Mendelssohn House in Leipzig and the “im zentrum lied” series in Cologne. Other concert venues include the Thürmer-Saal Bochum, the Erbdrostenhof in Münster, the Palais Wittgenstein Düsseldorf, the VOICES festival and the Brandenburg Summer Concerts. Her concert partners include Daniel Johannsen, Hagar Sharvit, Jeeyoung Lim, Pia Buchert and Julian Orlishausen.
