I am a flute player, singer, creative musician and teacher. Curious about different musical traditions, I perform orchestral and chamber music, jazz standards, 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.
Since graduating from music college, I have been performing, teaching and leading music workshops in my home country, Czech Republic. 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 have been employed by several Czech music schools, most recently Music School Hostivar;. I taught sessions at the International School of Prague and International School of Music and Fine Arts Prague, and covered teaching work at several schools and music services in London.
As a flute and piccolo player, I have toured with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra (BBC Blue Planet II Tour 2019, including concerts for 10K audiences), the Czech National Symphony Orchestra (UK Tour 2018, including venues like Cadogan Hall, Bridgewater Hall or Birmingham Symphony Hall) and the Pilsen Philharmonic (Harry Potter 3 Tour 2019). I was a member of the pit orchestra at the music theatre Goja Music Hall in Prague. I have played in numerous opera and ballet productions with the North Bohemian Theatre, including master pieces like Nabucco, Aida, The Bartered Bride, The Barber of Seville, Peer Gynt, or Swan lake. I have played 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, Les Fauristes Chamber Choir and Orchestra, or Adoramus Orchestra (Royal Albert Hall 2017).
I am a keen chamber musician and enjoy collaborating with my music friends. I have given recitals in London, Prague, Steken (Czechia) and Viena do Castelo (Portugal) . I have performed and recorded with Prague-based jazz ensemble Concept Art Orchestra. As a singer, I performed with Jazzmazec band and ran a project of original songs. Always looking to develop creatively, I am exploring composing with a loop station. I gave a solo loop performance at the Prague Flute Day 2018, where my students also performed my original composition and a piece we collaboratively composed. I devised and led creative music workshops for The Music FunDation, with which I am currently working on a series of educational videos on Music Theory.
I am currently pursuing postgraduate studies in Jazz Flute at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. I hold a First Class Honours degree from the Guildhall School, where I studied Classical Flute and Jazz Voice. I previously studied at the Prague Conservatoire, where I earned a Specialist Diploma in Flute. My studies have been kindly supported by the Guildhall School Scholarship Fund, Split Infinitive, Czech Music Fund and Foundation Zivot umelce.
