Markéta Dvořáková (*1977) is a Czech composer and piano teacher from Opava. She studied composition and piano playing at the Janáček Conservatory in Ostrava and continued her studies at the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno, where she studied composition. She currently teaches piano at the Primary Music School in Polanka, but she also teaches intonation, rhythm and auditory analysis at the Ostrava Conservatory and music theory and composition, instrumentation and arrangement of compositions and harmony at JAMU at Brno. Dvořáková composes songs mainly for her daughters and pupils at the Primary Music School, but also enjoys writing operas.

She composes for vocal ensembles of children and adults as well, most often for the female vocal ensemble Notabene, in which she also sings.
