Pavel Wlosok Pavel Wlosok

Czech born American pianist, composer, arranger, educator, music engineer, producer, and photographer Pavel Wlosok (*1973) started to play the piano when he was five years old. He received his classical education in piano performance and composition at the Janacek Conservatory of Music in OSTRAVA (1987 - 1993) in the classes of Mr. Zdenek Pecek and Mr. Igor Katajev, and at the Janacek Academy of Music (JAMU) in BRNO (1993 - 1995) in the class of Prof. Arnost Parsch (both Czech Republic). He obtained his bachelor and master degrees in jazz studies graduating cum laude at the University of North Texas (UNT) in DENTON, TX (1995 - 2000), where he studied composition with Prof. Cindy McTee, jazz piano with Prof. Dan Haerle, and classical piano with Prof. Adam Wodnicki.

While at the UNT, Pavel had served as pianist-arranger for the One O'clock Lab Band (his work is included on 4 CDs produced by this group, the last one featuring Canadian ECM artist Kenny Wheeler) and as teaching assistant of aural skills, music theory, and jazz piano before directing the Four O’clock Lab Band in his last year of studies. Pavel was also featured as a soloist with the UNT Wind Symphony (CD “Luminaries” under the direction of Eugene Corporon), and has toured Europe and North America as a pianist and composer. His first self-produced album as a leader is titled Long Journey (1997), and features his best friends from early North Texas years, such as saxophonists Tyler Kuebler and Wayne Delano, bassist Mike McGuirk, drummers Ed Soph and Rich Matschulat, and trumpeter Scott Harrell.

Credentials/Background

I have taught jazz courses and jazz piano lessons at Western Carolina University since 2002 and have worked full time in higher education for the past twenty plus years. I've also taught at summer jazz camps in Europe (since 1999), including Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Poland. While I specialize in teaching jazz piano, I can also provide lessons in classical and jazz composition/arranging/instrumentation as well as in recording arts (live and studio tracking, analog mixing to tape, mastering, and post-production audio services).
