From an early age, she regularly participates in competitions with zither and piano where she has won the highest awards. In 2017, she won the first prize at the Svirél International Competition and was ranked among the “Ten of the Best” of the competition. In 2017, she won the first prize at the international zither competition Ernst Volkmann-Preis in Munich, where she in 2019 received the second prize (the first prize was not awarded) as well. She presented herself to the audience as a soloist at several solo concerts and recitals in Slovenia and abroad (Munich, Hannover, Zurich, Music subscription at Rače Castle, Ljubljana Opera, Slovenian Philharmonic, zither subscription in Žalec … ).

Tajda wants to touch the audience with her way of playing and sensual interpretation and in that way bring this instrument closer to broader audience.
