Patryk Frac was born on the 13th of December 1997 in Bochnia, Poland. He began his musical education in 2004 in the National School of Music in Bochnia under Mrs Teresa Fyda’s tuition. After completing the ‘First Stage’ School in June 2010 with one of the highest marks he moved to England. Later that year he received a free place in the PianoMan scholarship scheme and started to take lessons from London based international concert pianist Richard Meyrick. Since then he has taken part in the residential courses organised by Richard, where he had a chance to play with respected Russian musicians, as well as meet and take lessons from some of the best pianists including Gabriele Baldocci, David Malusa or Maria Nemcova. At this time Patryk was also being regularly offered performance opportunities from the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham, notably the “Live at Lunch” concert series twice. For a culmination of his time in PianoMan, Patryk made his orchestral debut in 2016 playing Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1. In 2020 Patryk completed Bachelor studies at one of the UK’s leading conservatories - the Royal College of Music in London with professor Neil Immelman. Currently Patryk is a Beverley Creed Scholarship holder at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London, studying his second year with Gabriele Baldocci. Aside of performing, Patryk has a huge interest in composition (which he studied for 2 years with Haris Kitos in RCM), organ music and jazz.
