I’ve been singing as an amateur in various contexts for most of my life. However, I always had a feeling that I was missing professional vocal training, but in a mild way which would fit my amateur background. Tasha was a perfect fit for me. Firstly, she is an academic singer and choir director (graduated from National Music Academy of Ukraine). Secondly, she is a psychologist as well. And psychology – as I discovered during training with Tasha – means a lot for singing. Rehearsals with her was great mix of psychotherapy, breathing and body techniques as well as singing and even acting exercises. Tasha was like mentor for me, she was persistent enough to propose ideas, but kind enough to never dominate. I always felt that ultimately I’m the one to choose (or not to choose) what we do. Having trained with Tasha for a couple of years now, I feel that my voice become stronger, vocal range – wider, while my delivery – much more emotional. I’m happy to continue this journey, because the sky is the limit!
