Jacek Muzyk was born and raised in Poland. He began playing piano at the age of seven. Although he became a proficient jazz pianist by his late teens, he began to study French horn intensively at the age of eighteen. After graduation from the Academy of Music in Krakow, where Krzysztof Penderecki served as rector, he completed another masters degree with a full scholarship at the Mannes College of Music in New York studying with a famous soloist, David Jolley.

Jacek Muzyk received further education at the famous Juilliard School of Music, also with a full scholarship; he then continued studying at Rice University in Houston (TX) with William VerMeulen. Following his studies he returned to Poland, working full time with the best Polish orchestras: Sinfonia Varsovia, the National Philharmonic of Warsaw, the Krakow Philharmonic among others. In 1999 he was chosen as Principal Horn for Krystian Zimerman's Polish Festival Orchestra, a select group of Poland's finest musicians, which toured Europe and the United States playing over forty performances of Chopin's concertos, while winning a Grammy Award.

In 2002, Jacek Muzyk moved to the United States where he played with the Houston Grand Opera and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra before being appointed as Principal Horn with the Buffalo Philharmonic. He has made guest appearances with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Houston Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and other orchestras in USA, Japan, South America and Europe, and has also appeared as guest soloist.
