about

"World-class drumming, compositions

and instrumentation."

- János Sramkó, Drum Teacher of HUAJA Jazz University

"Mr. Takács created a great video-exam, something brand new what should be a requirement and what we, his pedagogues can be proud of"

- Balázs Neumann, Teacher of HUAJA Jazz University

I am a professional session musician, composer and teacher with over 15 years of experience in music industry and education. My teachers were János Sramkó, Jenő Esze, Gábor Cseke, Kornél Fekete-Kovács, Janó Tóth, Balázs Neumann and many others. I had the chance to play with many great bands and musicians like: István Fekete, Zsolt Csókás, Jenő Fekete, Ghymes, Eszter Takáts, Jenő Esze, GUP, Jóvilágvan, Face 'N' Base, Jambalaya, MS Amera Show Band, Tamás Kontor, Misi Horváth, Ágnes Szász, Juli Fábián. Beside composing my own instrumental pieces I co-produce, arrange, mix and edit and I try to keep up with today’s music, trends, new styles and performers, and pass on the useful knowledge I have aquired over the years to my students.
