I am a (born in 1987) Czech classical pop and crossover violinist and recording artist, DJ, and composer. Born into a musical family and a traditional culture teeming with music and dances, I was always taking my place on center stage. I presented choreographed violin performances, live and in music via my recording label Tomorrow Island and performs a variety of music styles, from classical music to deep house. In 2008, I began my concert series in Long Island, where I am known as the 'jazz violinist'. I have released two albums, an EP, several singles and toured many states across the US and Europe. Aside from original work, my discography contains covers of songs by other musicians and various soundtracks. Since 2011 I've performed also as a house DJ. My compositions matured from my earlier musical career as a band leader and the influence of diverse music perfected his style. Since 2008 I lives in New York.

Instruments:

I'm a firm believer in the idea that music is the greatest gift that we can share with each other. I started playing the piano at the young age of three years old, with my great grandmother first showing me that ever important middle C. Ever since that moment my love for music has never stopped growing. At the age of eight I started learning the violin and since then, practicing and performing on both instruments has been the greatest experience. I studied under several extremely talented teachers over the years, and now am performing in professional orchestras in New York. Once your love of music begins growing, it will never stop!

Music has been a huge part of my life ever since I can remember. My mom started me on violin at age 4, and I decided to branch out to the piano at age 9. Both instruments have brought me many rich opportunities. I can't think of more fun times than I had at summer music camps, making new friends and meeting inspiring performers. When I graduated from high school, I was honored to perform in an orchestra that toured Europe. It was a cultural experience second to none. Shortly thereafter, I decided to try my hand at folk music, which has been a lot of fun and challenging; the improv skills demanded by the genre truly honed my musicianship. My life has been enriched by all my musical experiences, whether in professional settings, church functions, or just jammin' with friends!

    "My daughter is 10 years old and has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Dale J. for almost 4 years now. She is progressing nicely. His kind and gentle way make for a very positive learning experience. Mr. Dale J. is encouraging without being harsh or belittling. He is patient and the ideal instructor for my daughter."

    Travis is the greatest. He knows his music and how to teach it. He gives you time to learn, but will not allow student time to get lazy. I know he teaches all age groups. Young pre-teens to us old folks 78 years young. I have been taking lessons from him since early December 2014. He is a true professional. You can't go wrong with him.

    Review by Maria

    My daughter has been taking piano lessons through her school district program for the last two years. She had learned a lot in that class but I noticed that she needed advanced classes at this point. After reviewing several websites I decided to enroll my daughter for the trial at MUSIKA. We got Mrs. Veronica B., and I am more than happy we got her as my daughter's teacher. Mrs. Veronica B. was very professional and very knowledgeable at the trial day. She was able to assess my daughter skill's level, and then she was able to give suggestions about how to improve those skills. My daughter has taken 5 classes with Mrs. Barker, and I can see she enjoys each class and she's improved a lot since day one. I can picture my daughter playing her favorites songs on the piano very soon!!! :-)

    Review by Dylan Jacinto

    Jessie is the finest musician I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I find her overall concept of approaching an instrument to be both comprehensive and effective. Each technique she has acquired has made it possible for her to tailor her method to a variety of ages and individuals. I cannot speak more highly of Miss Jessie's abilities. Her lengthy and impressive cradecials speak for themselves. I recommend no hesitation in seeking her services!

    Stephanie is an excellent voice teacher! Our 10-year-old daughter enjoys her lessons with Stephanie each week. She has an amazing way of connecting with our daughter through music. Stephanie knows how to offer constructive feedback in a positive way that keeps our daughter interested and wanting to learn more. I would recommend Stephanie without hesitation.

    Review by Svea Bryan

    Brett is an accomplished musician, who shared his knowledge at a level that my five year old understands. He is polite and relaxed in his mannerisms but take a serious approach to focusing on the lesson. He is very patient and engaging with the attention span you'd expect from a kindergartener. His motto ever is "sometime you learn faster by going slow"

    After my first piano lesson, Polina is easily the best teacher I could have hoped for. Extremely charismatic and excited to help YOU learn the piano. She puts a lot of effort into evaluation your learning style and will no doubt help you make tremendous strides! I'm stoked to continue taking lessons!

    Review by Lea G

    Kevin was such a fun, smart and innovative voice teacher to work with. I had the pleasure of taking lessons with him for over a year and I couldn’t have been more pleased with my time under his training. In just a few weeks I noticed my voice was stronger and I was able to apply his teaching and see the results. He explains his techniques in a way that the student is able to actually hear and feel the changes he is referring to. This allows the student to efficiently practice outside of lessons. Even further, he believed in me and truly cared about my progress. He was always energetic and focused in lessons and was continually surprised how far a song could come in just one hour of his time. Under his teaching I developed a stronger belt in my higher range, learned how to color my voice for different sounds and improved my stage presence. I wholeheartedly trust Kevin’s musical insight and was grateful that he challenged me with a wide variety of songs and styles that I hadn’t considered trying before.
