He studied at the Prague Conservatory in the composition class of Jaroslav Křička (1923 - 27). At the same time he attended to conducting at Otakar Ostrčil and Pavel Dědeček and organ at Bedřich Antonín Wiedermann, Antonín Elšlégr and Karel Douša. The folk song played a very important role throughout the whole life and compositional work of Václav Trojan.

Melodic inventiveness was the basis of Trojan's musical thinking - and his concise musical ideas are completely and firmly rooted in Czech folklore. Through these, Trojan managed to excellently capture the drama and mood of the situation in his film and scenic music (he is especially famous for his music to the animated films of Jiří Trnka). His concert work remained somewhat in the shadow of the international success of his music for film - besides, many of Trojan's concert compositions were created by additional modification of what was originally music for film, most frequently in the form of suites with several movements.
