Tatiana Rubina's first teacher was her mother, a graduate of the Moscow Conservatory. At the age of seven Tatiana began her studies into the Central Music School affiliated with the Moscow Conservatory into the class of Ilya Klyachko. While she was still in first сlass, she made her debut at the Small Hall of the Conservatory with Haydn's Piano Concerto in D major. After finishing school, she enrolled into the Moscow State Conservatory as a student of Lev Nikolayevich Oborin. Her concert activities began during her years of studies at the Conservatory, when she received a first prize of the performance of Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto and was granted the opportunity to perform this concerto in the Grand Hall of the Conservatory. At that same period of time her meeting with Aram Ilyich Khachaturian took place, which was followed by countless performances in his monographic concerts. This marked the beginning of her fruitful cooperation with many contemporary composers. Since that time she has been a regular performer of contemporary music at the annual contemporary music festivals, «Moscow Autumn» and «Panorama of Music.»

«Tatiana Rubina is a musician endowed with a bright creative individuality, an original talent, she is one of the most remarkable Russian pianists.»
«Tatiana Rubina continues the traditions of the Russian pianistic school in a convincing manner. There has not been a single contemporary music festival at which she had not played works by composers of the near and the far abroad, and this has always been carried out on the highest level with an immersion into the very essence of the musical compositions, in a brilliant, temperamental manner and with true artistry.»
«Pianist Tatiana Rubina speaks with us in the language of romanticism with all the perfection and power inherent in them. Her freedom of tempi, richness of nuances, brilliance and virtuosity testify of her musical and technical perfection. The Etudes by Scriabin and Chopin performed as an encore sounded out as certain impulsive fireworks. It was an incredible, fantastic concert.»
«Suddeutsche Zeitung» from February 25,1997
«Tatiana Rubina stands along with not fully recognized giants among the pianists. She aroused rapture with the performance of her romantic concert program. Her performance is entrancing, and one can sense an immense reserve of power in it. The entire evening passed on the highest artistic level.»
