Tanya had two main loves in life growing up, one was sport and the other was music. With her young ear pressed against a speaker, she listened to her parents vinyl records, like Patsy Cline and Johnny cash, and a passion was born.However, it wasn't until her high school music theatre teacher, Mr. Peter Vanderhorst encouraged her to follow her musical pursuits, that she seriously considered a career in music. From there she studied voice with Nancy Davis and performed in her high-school musicals and choir. In 1995 she was chosen as the "Peoples Choice" award winner at the British Columbia Country Music Association vocalist of the year completion, held at the Boone County Cabaret. In her youth, she also taught skiing, attended Capilano University for Business Administration and played for the Cap Blues volleyball team. In 1996, she started TAG Sale Inc., a growing and successful sportswear sales and distribution company that she still runs today. TAG Sales Inc now owns and operates two Golf stores in the Vancouver area under the name of Peak Golf
When her children were born, her desire to rekindle her musical passion was re-ignited. She was determined to create for her children a love and a comfort around music that would stay with them for a lifetime. After attending a Music Together® class with both her children, she was hooked. Her goal with Music Together is to help parents and caregivers successfully bring music into their homes as a form of everyday communication. She hopes to develop musically competent children, who can embrace music without fear. Tanya feels music is an all-too-often forgotten gift, which we all possess. She successfully completed her Music Together Teachers training, developed by The Center for Music and Young Children in Princeton, New Jersey.
"Not only does Tanya have an incredible singing voice, but her joy and enthusiasm is contagious. Tanya's classes are so much fun and she has a knack for making everyone feel super comfortable right away."Natasha - Music Together mom
