« 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. »

Experience

I am a flute player, singer, creative musician and keen 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 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 worked for several music departments at schools, currently Arts and Media School Islington in London. I taught sessions at the International School of Prague and International School of Music and Fine Arts Prague, and prepared students for performances and competitions as part of the Czech music education system.
As a current Master's student at Guidlhall School of Music and Drama, I have had the privilege to perform alongside such legends as Julian Joseph, Joe Stilgoe, or Tim Garland.
As an orchestral 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, Štěkeň (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, Ministry of Culure of the Czech Republic, Split Infinitive Trust, Czech Music Fund and Foundation Život umělce.

Martina is an excellent music teacher. I was her employer in Prague for two years. She taught my clients flute, recorder and guitar. Her students made considerable progress and performed well in end-of-term concerts. My clients appreciated her friendly and enthusiastic approach. She was always professional and committed to her work. I can happily recommend her for any future students wishing to take their music to the next level.
