I am a performing musician and music teacher, currently based in London, UK. I trained in Classical Flute and Jazz Flute Performance at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where I earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, and obtained my Specialist Diploma in Flute from the Prague Conservatoire. Curious about different musical traditions, I perform orchestral and chamber music, Brazilian music, jazz and original music. I also enjoy singing, playing piano, and writing music. Please CONTACT ME if you would like to book music lessons with me, or collaborate musically. I am available for performance or recording work, including self-recording in my home studio.
These days, I split my time between practising, performing, teaching and writing music. I enjoy collaborating in small line-ups, and have performed in various duo, trio and small band settings. Always looking to develop creatively, I explore writing songs, arranging for jazz ensembles, or collaborative composition. I have lead creative music workshops for The Music FunDation and taught a seminar on Creativity in Music at the Teplice Conservatoire.
I perform as an orchestral player, often doubling on piccolo and alto flute. 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 artists like Julian Joseph, Joe Stilgoe, Tim Garland, Ivo Neame, or Iain Ballamy.
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. Please contact me to book a lesson.
I am very grateful to have received generous support on my musical journey from 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.
