He began playing music at the age of seven with cello being his first instrument. Following the footsteps of his mother he took on violin when he was nine, and at the age of 11, trumpet became his major instrument.
He started learning piano under the guidance of well known pianists, Katarzyna Popowa Zydron, Waldemar Wojtal and Wlodzimierz Wiesztordt.
