I was born in Prague, on April 4, 1949. I began to study the piano when I was 8 years old and the cello at the age of 10. After graduating from the Electro-Technical Secondary School I was employed in the sound department of Czech TV in Prague.
In 1972 I passed the entrance examinations for university studies at the Academy of Performing Arts (HAMU - Music Faculty), where I studied composition, piano and music pedagogy.
Within the framework of the composition class I was chosen to attend the Summer Courses in Siena - Italy (prof. F. Donatoni). After completing my graduate composition for AMU (Concert for Piano and Orchestra), I was granted a post-gradual scholarship (for two years) at the State Conservatory in Moscow under prof. N. Sidelnikov.
Now I am employed as a pedagogue in the Department of Music and Sound at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague - Film and TV Faculty (FAMU) and Jazz Conservatory (KJJ) too.
