About Tajda J. Turner
Tajda has been a vocal coach, singing teacher, and music mentor for more than 10 years. She has taught over 150 students, many of whom have progressed to professional singing careers and attended performing arts academies across Europe.
As an award-winning soprano, Tajda has performed as a in numerous productions and continues to gain recognition working with renowned orchestras and artists. Having worked with some of the world’s finest singers, conductors and directors, Tajda has built up a wealth of experience to pass on to her students.
While she remains an active singer, her greatest passion has always been in helping to guide the next generation of performers. V.A.S students will therefore not only become better singers and performers, but those with professional ambitions will have access to unique insight from someone who has already taken a similar path.
Tajda is a born singer and an excellent pedagogue. With her help, I was able to significantly improve my interpretation. Whenever I left a lesson, I left not only with a passion for further improvement, but also with a clear idea of how to achieve it – and this is probably the most a teacher can give a student.
Tajda showed me how emotions are best expressed through music, how to understand the emotional theme, and then perform it. She even helped and advised me on original songs. I warmly recommend Tajda to everyone. She is very kind, always cheerful, empathetic, and open-hearted.
I learned from her the technical aspect of correct breathing, supported singing, and expanded my vocal range. Tajda is hard-working, relaxed and lively, and she is very professional. She has a lot of knowledge about solo singing, which she can pass on to students in an understandable and interesting way.
I came as a rock singer, but in the end I got a lot more than that. Tajda is an exceptional pedagogue, with a deep knowledge of singing. With her help, I became a confident singer in practically all genres, and my music knowledge expanded. I use the knowledge with several music groups, which serves me well today.
Tajda is a very special person. She has clear desires and goals, and teaches from her experience and success. Tajda teaches not only techniques for different types of singing, but offers important critique that contribute to a successful performance.
I can say that visiting solo singing at Tajda was one of my best decisions of my life. The classes are very relaxed and always filled with laughter and fun. With her help, my vocal range has increased, and I gained stamina and self-confidence. She is an excellent mentor who wholeheartedly dedicates herself to music.
Tajda is one of the main reasons why I became a professional singer. She always inspires me with her positive, energetic and professional attitude. Tajda is always willing to adapt to her students and helps to fulfil their potential. I found my voice with Tajda, gaining a lot of knowledge and confidence, as well as motivation for the future.
I started going to Tajda’s singing lessons when I was very young. We started with easier songs, but I progressed very quickly and I started performing after only one year. I was always very nervous before performances, but Tajda helped me a lot. I also play the guitar, which we have included in the performances several times.
