By the time He got his diploma at the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music in 1995 He'd already spent two years in Turkey as the Principal Tubist of the Istanbul State Opera. Since that as a free-lance musician he's been playing with the major symphonic orchestras in Budapest, (E.g.: Hungarian Radio Symphony, Hungarian Opera. etc.). From 1995 (besides the classical orchestral and solo performances) he has more and more "jazz gigs" as well. He plays with an acoustic blues band called Dr. Valter and the Lawbreakers, and I often appears as jazz soloist in several jazz formations. In 1997 he won second prize in the Street Music category at the Verso il Millenio international tuba and euphonium conference, in Riva del Garda, Italy.
