Miroslav Vitous

Vitous was one of many gifted musicians who started playing early in life. He began playing the violin when he was six years old. Vitous then moved on to the piano at the age of 10, and finally settled on the bass at the age of 14. F. Posta was his teacher at Prague Conservatory in Czechoslovakia. It is interesting to look back at the history of the conservatory, which was headed by Antonin Dvorak. The conservatory’s rigorous program requires that all students study for six years and pass strict exams. He played in a trio along with his brother Alan and Jan Hammer during this period. Miroslav was awarded a scholarship to Berklee College of Music, Boston. He arrived in the U.S. in 1966.
