Congrats to Tatiana Viscun, faculty member at the Brooklyn Music School. The melody-making academic will receive a Civic Award from Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo (D–Fort Greene) on Oct. 6, at the Brass, Pipe Organ, and the Piano concert at Hanson Place Church of SDA in Fort Greene.

“Congratulations to Tatiana for this acknowledgement of her incredible talent and work. I am thrilled that her generous commitment to her craft and to her students is being recognized,” said the councilwoman.

“Tatiana is an extraordinary pianist and exceptional music teacher. She is an intuitive, insightful, and talented piano teacher whose dynamic sessions can integrate elements of the human body and nature into the art of the piano,” said colleague Bob Martin, Ph.D.

Tatiana was born in Chelyabinsk, Russia, began playing piano, at 4 years old, studied at the Special Music School in Krivoy Rog, Ukraine, and obtained her Bachelor of Music degree at the State Music College and her Masters from the State University of the Arts in Chisinau, Moldova.

As a teacher, she strives to introduce her students to a broad range of musical possibilities, helping them develop a deep appreciation of the piano.
