In 1947 his parents noticed that Vida Gabor was able to play back exactly classical music on the flute just based on hearing. He was celebrated as a wunderkind and was admitted to the “Ferenc Liszt music academy”. There he was a student of Professor Ferenc Hochstrasser. At the same time he visited the music grammar school in Budapest where he graduated. In 1950 he began to paint autodidactic pictures with water- and oil colours. He gave many concerts as the soloist in the Budapest philharmonic orchestra in Hungary and in numerous European cities. Parallel to that he worked on many orders for paintings. In 1961 Vida Gabor quitted his professorship for flute, which he had done for 16 years.
