When you hear music you can see the colors of the notes painting a picture - capturing a moment, a store - for me - the keys are stronger than the pen.
Born in the Czech Republic, I grew up in a large family of adopted children. Our mother surrounded us with music and arts. As I grew older - in spite of having studied law - I gravitated to performance. First as an actor - and then to music. I started by simply sitting down in front of a piano much as a child picks up crayons. I couldn't put them down.
Later I was accepted to the Prague Conservatory of music where I worked on technique and music theory. However, I always returned to my coloring roots of composition.
For me, music is expression. I can tell you more about myself and describe others better through the keys than with a pen. It is as painting - each note is a different color. I hear the colors as I play.
Passion for me is telling a story through music - about the people I meet, experiences in life, and stories I come across. Each tone, note, and pause conveys meanings that bring joy to others.
Piano is my voice - it's the way I open up to everyone and everything. Music lets us not forget who we are, to stand and listen - breathe and live.
