Her specialization in teaching music was not random. During her studies she was influenced by Doc.Alena Tichá -, who was a voice coach and worked particularly with non-singers who started singing under her guidance. Another teacher who greatly influenced her during her studies was Doc. Jaroslav Herden - most of all for his kind and wise attitude to music and people.
