The Czech pianist and music teacher, Dagmar Baloghová (maiden name: Pechová), graduated from the gymnasium in Jičíně (1940-1948). She studied piano with Ilony Štěpánové-Kurzové at AMU (1948-1952), where she worked as an assistant. Already during her srudies she began touring as a music scholar and artistic exchanges. In 1951 she received an honorable mention at the Smetanově Competition, and in 1955 participated in the Chopin Competition in Warsaw.
