Teaching since:

I am a recorder player, recorder and French teacher, cultural anthropologist, and a big coffee lover. I come from Zlín, a small town in the Czech Republic, where I started to learn the recorder at the age of 6. I studied at the Conservatory of Evangelical Academy in Olomouc with Jitka Konecna and graduated in 2017. During my conservatory studies, I performed with the recorder ensemble Flauto Dolce and participated in workshops and Early music masterclasses with well-known recorder players, such as Alan Davis, Jostein Gundersen, Saskia Coleen or Ashley Solomon. I had also an opportunity to extend my music experience during two years spent in France where I studied with Sabine Weill and Agnes Lacornerie. Since 2005, I was a member of the group Marnatosnaha, playing various genres, as medieval, renaissance, folk, and christian. Marnatosnaha performs regularly in folk and medieval festivals in the Czech and Slovak Republic. Currently, I am a member of the Washington Recorder Society and the recorder ensemble Sine Nomine. In addition to my music background, I obtained a Bachelor degree in the Culture Anthropology and French philology, and a Master degree in European studies.

Lessons with Adela were always full of new information about baroque and renaissance interpretation. And I really enjoy playing duets together!
