Graduated in organ playing from Jan Hora’s class at the Prague Conservatory, and in 2003 from Jaroslav Tůma’s class at the Academy of Performing Arts, Prague.

In 2002, he studied at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hamburg with Wolfgang Zerer.

He received awards in several competitions in the Czech Republic and abroad (such as the Georg Muffat Orgel Wettbewerb 2002, Schlägl, Austria). He works as a Cantor of the Czechoslovak Evangelical Church and is the organist of the St. Salvator Church in Prague. (…)
