As long as she can remember there has always been music in Teacher Lenka's life, whether it was her mom singing on family car rides, her dad playing any instrument he could get his hands on, or listening to old classical records in the family living room. Lenka has been playing the piano since she was six years old at the Folk School of Music in Pilsen, Czech Republic where she was born. Later on in high school she picked up the guitar as well. More recently she has taught herself to play the ukulele. Lenka has always known she wanted three things in her life: to be an early childhood teacher, make music and be a mother. She holds a degree in elementary education from West Bohemia University in the Czech Republic and has a master's degree in early childhood education from SFSU.
