Teaching

I am a dedicated and enthusiastic music teacher. I have been teaching for 6 years, both in schools and privately, all ages from 5-adults. I will guide you to achieve your goals, whether it be passing grade exams, auditioning for a community band or playing a tune at your friend’s party. I will help you develop solid technique, engage your creative voice, use your body in a balanced way, and explore a wide range of genres. I plan my lessons to suit your interests and individual pace. Most importantly, I want you to have fun with your music making! 

I can teach in English, French or Czech. I am DBS checked.

I am currently offering lessons in London at my home studio (SE27), or at your place. I may ask you to cover my travel expenses depending on distance (to be agreed in advance). I am also happy to provide online lessons.

Rates: 45 mins = £35, 60 mins = £45

I am happy to help you with your musicianship and music theory preparation up to grade 8.

I can help you learn your favourite songs in the pop, folk or jazz idioms. If you want to accompany yourself, I will teach you essential KEYBOARD or GUITAR SKILLS. If you want to write your own songs, I can show you creative approaches to writing lyrics and fitting them to music.

Would you like to play the RECORDER?

I have taught recorder to groups of pre-schoolers, as well as teenagers and adults. I can give lessons up to Grade 5.

Do you need a PRACTICE TUTOR?

I can supervise your child’s practice and help them establish habits for efficient music learning.

Do you need a COACH for chamber music or band?

I have experience coaching groups of music students, and helping them prepare repertoire for public performances. My musical background allows me to work with classical groups as well as school pop and folk bands.

 

 

TESTIMONIALS

Erika (flute student, 18)

I really loved lessons with Martina. She is a great flute player and she can pass her experience on to her students very well. She taught me classical music, jazz, modern music and also improvisation or playing by heart, so the lessons were enjoyable and not boring at all. She was patient and when I needed help with something I didn’t get, she was ready to explain it again and again. Thanks to her I didn’t give up playing the flute but I’m loving it. She is the best teacher I’ve ever had.

Ms. Hnatkova (parent of a flute student)

I can highly recommend Martina as a flute teacher. Although my daughter is quite shy, she enjoyed her flute lessons from day one and even started attending flute concerts. Martina’s friendly, attentive and partner-like approach increased my daughter’s motivation throughout the year. We hope she will come back to Prague soon!
