I am a London-based performing musician and music teacher. I trained as a Classical Flute player at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where I am currently pursuing postgraduate studies in Jazz Flute. Curious about different musical traditions, I perform orchestral and chamber music, jazz, and original music. I also enjoy singing, playing piano, guitar and ukulele, and writing songs. Please CONTACT ME if you would like to book music lessons with me, or explore some musical collaboration. I am available for performance or recording work, including self-recording in my home studio.
After finishing my undergraduate course in 2017, I was busy performing, teaching and leading music workshops in my home country, Czech Republic. I toured Europe with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra (BBC Blue Planet II Tour 2019) and the Czech National Symphony Orchestra (UK Tour 2018). I played in the pit orchestra at the music theatre Goja Music Hall in Prague. I played in opera and ballet productions with the North Bohemian Theatre, symphonic performances with the Pilsen Philharmonic, Czech Chamber Philharmonic Pardubice, Talich Philharmonia, and contemporary music with the Berg Orchestra. I recorded a CD as a guest of the jazz ensemble Concept Art Orchestra. In the UK, I have had the pleasure to play with the Southampton Philharmonic Society, World Harmony Orchestra and Les Fauristes Chamber Choir and Orchestra. Thanks to my university, I have had the privilege to perform in jazz bands alongside such legends as Julian Joseph, Joe Stilgoe, or Tim Garland.
I am a keen chamber musician and enjoy collaborating with my music friends, giving recitals with piano, guitar or as part of various mixed groups or bands. As a singer, I performed with Jazzmazec band and ran a project of original songs. Always looking to develop creatively, I explore composing with a loop station. I gave a solo loop performance at the Prague Flute Day 2018, and regularly lead creative music workshops for The Music FunDation.
I am passionate about teaching music. I have experience teaching all ages and enjoy helping my students achieve their musical goals and discover their creative potential. I am currently teaching flute at Arts and Media School Islington, and private students of flute, piano, guitar and music theory. I taught sessions at the International School of Prague and International School of Music and Fine Arts Prague, and at Czech state music schools (ZUŠ).
I hold a First Class Honours degree from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, where I am currently pursuing a Master’s. I previously studied at the Prague Conservatoire, where I earned a Specialist Diploma. My studies have been generously supported by the Czech Ministry of Culture, Czech Music Fund, Foundation Život umělce, Foundation Nadační fond na podporu vážné hudby, Split Infinitive Trust and Guildhall School Scholarship Fund.
