(November, 2013) I live in the Czech republic. I am recently retired but still occasionally work in our little firm, which was established nearly 100 years ago by my grandfather.
My parents were amateur musicians, so from childhood I was surrounded by music. My music career began at age 7 with piano lessons, which I continued for 8 years. When I was 10, I started learning the clarinet. Later, I took lessons on the guitar and, still later, on the contrabass.
I played the clarinet in a school brass ensemble and later in a dixieland orchestra. I played the contrabass in a school string orchestra. My first paying public clarinet appearance was in the dixieland orchestra together with my friends when I was 15. At 16, I started playing the piano with adults in a big band.
During my studies and later, I played the piano, or the organ, in dance bands from time to time. When I was 23, I once again began to play regularly the piano and then the organ. Later I played the electronic strings and still later the synthesizers, etc. When I performed, I usually played two or three instruments. I owned about 15 instruments -- electronic pianos, organs, strings, synthesizers, typical keyboards and so on. Many times until now, I began and ended my playing in orchestras because of my work. Ongoing work requirements often caused long interuptions in my musical career.
As an amateur, I played the keyboard in balls with various orchestras, cafe bars, taverns and so on. From 1988 through 2007 I gave up playing because of the growth in our firm. During these 20 years I didn't play in public at all so music fell by the wayside.
Unfortunately, today I no longer have a clarinet or contrabass. Seven years ago, I bought my last instrument, a Yamaha Clavinova CVP 301. I now only play at home for my own pleasure and for my friends. Because I've forgotten a lot and lost my earlier skills, it has been difficult to get back to my earlier standards.
I like all kinds of good music. The PSR Tutorial provides an excellent opportunity for musicians to share their music and to gain experience and meet more friends. I hope you enjoy my music.
Recently I'm active at YouTube. All videos have music I uploaded. I composed music for all music videos. You can find all my songs here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbpn0MvXxP2zCuiLxFuoP4A/videos
