My work.

My work output could be divided into three categories: creating, educating, and performing. All of them are equally important to me. For me, one cannot exist without another, as they complement each other. The trajectory of my life as a composer is a testament to my belief that an artist’s complexity (in all its aspects, musical or otherwise) is what defines the profoundness of their work.
In my compositions, I tend to synthesize divergent inputs with my inherent cultural background. I also develop projects focusing on promoting new music – with a particular emphasis on Czech and of the SFCM community. Please explore my website to learn more.

My vision.

As a composer, I gained a deep understanding of what musical art is: a means of communication in which clarity is essential to a successful outcome. I communicate my nurtured and ever-evolving visions via three essential vehicles – creating, performing, and educating. I firmly believe that all of the three form a well-roundedly sophisticated mature artist.

Get To
Know Me.

Native to the Czech Republic, I came to the United States to gain divergent perspectives that have been formidable in my artistic path. Absorbing, reflecting, rejecting, and synthesizing antithetical visions with my cultural heritage and background gave me the unique opportunity of a 21st-century composer to mold all these perceptions into my very own compositional language. Czech music perhaps belongs to the most valuable export articles in the Czech Republic, and I wish to continue this remarkable legacy in the world. Evidently, it touches audiences all over the globe. Educating and performing is a no less critical curriculum of my artistic life that has formed the musician I am now. See my bio to learn more about me.

lessons.

Apart from composing, I am a passionate educator. I believe that educating a whole musician is far more profound and beneficial than focusing on the given discipline and its issues solely. I teach composition, theory, piano, and voice. Feel welcome to reach out to discuss your lesson interests.
