My work in world of music

I’ve always been amazed by uniqueness of the individual tones formed to melodies through chords to the whole sound. From an early age, I’ve been trying to play a variety of instruments, such as recorder, guitar, drums, percussion, and cello. Now I perform in various orchestras as a music player and as a conductor. 

I collaborate with many people from the music or film industry individually and apply a wide range of diversity in my approach to various projects. Therefore, I compose, arrange and orchestrate and conduct compositions for quartets, jazz trios, big bands, acoustic bands and orchestras with any style.

Arranges & orchestrations

I have been arranging and orchestrating for 14 years. I have huge experience in writing for orchestras, bands, quartets, trios, big bands, pop brass bands, concert bands, folk groups, synthware experiments, etc. I started arranging for the whole symphony orchestra right away and so later had the opportunity to listen whole work as it was.

I have made many film and non-film titles such as Anděl Páně 2, Důvěrný nepřítel, Against The Wild, Marie Theresie, Bond & Beatles in Concert, Eva Farna in Concert, Vesna Concert, etc.

Conducting & music preparation

I studied conducting at the Jaroslav Ježek Conservatory with Professor Hynek Farkač. I gained further practice by studying other important conductors, including Leonard Bernstein, Herbert von Karajan and Jiří Bělohlávek. I am currently conducting the Šarbilach Orchestra, which I have been conducting for the fourth year. I am the internal conductor of Soundsgate company, where I also orchestrate and prepare sheet music.

Quality music material is always a guarantee of good and quick orientation and good settings of musicians and conductors. If the notation is in a poor quality, the time for recording frequencies is extended and therefore the budget for musicians and the studio must be increased. So I am trying to avoid this problem at all costs.

Teaching notation softwares

Since I have been working in music programs for 18 years, I can offer training to those who are interested. I train Sibelius, Dorico, MuseScore, Finale, as well as other DAW programs such as Cubase or Propellerheads Reason. If this is an unresolved issue, or you need advice on settings, or deciding to purchase this or another notation program, I will be happy to answer these questions.
