I am a flute player, singer, creative musician and teacher. I trained as a classical flute player but have been curious about various musical traditions. I perform orchestral and chamber music, jazz, compose original music influenced by folk and jazz, and explore improvisation and musical experimentation. I enjoy playing on all sizes of flutes, including piccolo, alto, bass and contrabass.
I have recently moved back to London to pursue postgraduate studies in Jazz Flute at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Please contact me if you would like to book music lessons with me or explore some musical collaboration.
In the past two years, I have been freelancing, teaching and leading music workshops in my home country, Czech Republic. I have toured with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra (BBC Blue Planet II Tour 2019) and the Czech National Symphony Orchestra (UK Tour 2018). I am a member of the pit orchestra at the music theatre Goja Music Hall in Prague. I have played in opera and ballet productions with the North Bohemian Theatre, symphonic performances with the Czech Chamber Philharmonic Pardubice, Talich Philharmonia, and contemporary music with the Berg 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. I have recorded a CD with as a guest of the jazz ensemble Concept Art Orchestra.
I am a keen chamber musician and enjoy collaborating with my music friends, including Taiwanese pianist Alice Lin (recitals at festivals Prague museum night, Music summer in Štěkeň), Portuguese guitarist Fábio Fernandes and American pianist Jason Gong (trio recitals in Prague and Viana do Castelo). 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 also 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 flute, piano and guitar students around London. 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 studied Classical Flute and Jazz Voice, and where I am currently pursuing a Master’s in Jazz Flute. I previously studied at the Prague Conservatoire, where I earned a Specialist Diploma. My studies have been kindly supported by the Czech Ministry of Culture, Czech Music Fund, Foundation Život umělce, Split Infinitive Trust and Guildhall School Scholarship Fund.
