Student resume

I was born into an artist family in Prague. I started playing piano at age four. In 2009 I graduated from the Jan Neruda High School, concentrating on music, a member of Jan Tůma’s piano class. I went on to study piano at the Prague Conservatory in Martin Kasík’s class.

Since I like traveling and meeting new people, I was delighted to participate in several international piano courses during my studies, receiving advice from piano players such as Ivan Moravec and Leif Ove Andsnes. I always find listening to opinions on my performance from experts as well as lay members of the audience very valuable.

I believe that feedback is immensely important for an up and coming artist. So is being able to compare your work and/or interpretation with others’ performances. I am also grateful for the opportunity to participate in several international piano competitions, which were always great experiences for me. On several occasions, they also meant great joy of success or victory.

I was admitted to the Hochschule für Musik Nürnberg in Professor Wolfgang Manz’s class in 2010. The reason why I chose this school was the very high artistic standard of the studies, which one can expect at German music universities, as well as my great interest in German musical culture and the German language. I am grateful and thankful to The Kellner Family Foundation for their financial support for my international studies, which would not be possible without it.
