My aim and interest is to help students love what they are doing and find ways to help them fulfil their goals whatever they are. From learning to play just a few songs on the piano to be successful with exams or auditions to any university anywhere in the world.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching and performing for almost 25 years now. Since the days that I was studying at Prague Conservatory I had the chance to perform solo in international festivals and be part of chamber music ensembles, giving concerts in different european countries (Switzerland, Germany, Norway, UK, Iceland, Czech Republic, Greece) and in the USA.
I helped many of my students reach their goals from just learn to play the piano for the pleasure of it or for entering universities. My students were successful in their entrance examinations for the Prague Conservatory and for the Pedagogic faculty (Music education) of the Charles University in Prague. During my postgraduate studies in USA was teaching piano to BA music students and was accompanying instrumental as well as voice lessons and concerts.
I have my private piano studio with students of all ages and with different goals and dreams.
