I was born on April 17, 1988 in Varnsdorf (Czech Republic) and moved to Germany in 1990. At the age of 6 I took my first keyboard lesson. It was love at first sight between me and a Yamaha PSR-510.
Nearly 7 years later I broadened my horizons by playing on a CVP-207 Digital piano, which then brought me to the international competition of electronic keyboard instruments in Interlaken (Switzerland):
- Winner of the German championship
- Winner of the European championship (highest exceptional prize included)
- Second prize at the German championship Tasto Solo
- Winner of the German championship Tasto Solo
- First prize at Jugend musiziert (regional competition)
Recognizing that music was my first love I started taking professional piano lessons in one of Germanys best Music Schools, the Academy of Musical Arts in Darmstadt. I feel honored to be taught by such great musicians like pianist Oliver Kolb, composer Alois Bröder (music theory) or the clarinetist Erwin Tomczyk.
Since then I have been performing as a piano soloist and accompanist in many musical projects. Among other things I performed with musical actor Jonathan Eio (www.jonathaneio.com) and there are coming new projects with him.
When I was 17, I listened to a film score for the first time Hans Zimmer, Gladiator. I never had a real idol before but since that time it has been Hans Zimmer.
As a start, I began to write piano arrangements of scores like Pearl Harbor or Pirates of the Caribbean. Later on I tried to be more creative and I started to write my own music.
In order to become more professional, Im dealing with music software, the principles of orchestration and the functions of music in film. In 2006, I wrote the score to a short film - my first attempt!
After my civilian service Im going to study music, because this is what I have always dreamed of.
