Document Name 2 113

I was born in 1996 in Székesfehérvár, Hungary. I became interested in music when I was about 4-5 years old. We had some bands with my brother and played the hits of '60s and '70s, especially the hits of Omega. When I was 8, I started learning guitar because there was already a drummer in my family (My Father). As time was going on, I realized that the guitar is not my favorite instrument at all. So I started having drum lessons in 2009. 

That was the time when my career was being started. I've started listening to The Beatles and Deep Purple. I left my first drum teacher in 2011 and have started learning by my present teacher, József Bordás. He has shown me that the music is not just the rock music. Inspired by that I played with Zsolt Esze - jazz pianist, Roland Balogh - Guitarist, winner of Montreux Jazz Guitar competition(2009), Zoltán Balogh - Pianist, 3rd rated of the Montreux Jazz Piano competition, and József "Pluto" Horváth - Bassist, winner of the Péter Dandó Jazz Bass guitar competition(2003). Inspired by these concerts I've started learning traditional jazz drumming by Balázs Bágyi.

In the end of 2012 I've had a request to perform on the Drummer's Carnival.  This Carnival is the biggest drum festival in Hungary, I was proud to play for about 500 drummers. I played a concert with László Benkő, the keyboardist of Omega.

I am the student of Béla Bartók Conservatory of Music on jazz-drum fact since September 2013.

Music is everybody's possession. It's only publishers who think that people own it.
