Petr Skoumal (7 March 1938 – 28 September 2014) was a Czech musician and composer.

Skoumal focused on film music. He also composed music for animated shorts (i.e. ''Maxipes Fik'', ''Pat & Mat'', etc.). In the past he made several stage performances with Jan Vodňanský in The Drama Club in Prague. After the break-up of the duo he made several albums for adults, echoing the communist times (i.e. ''Half-life'', ''March''). In the 90s he started a series of albums for children, based on the stories of Emanuel Frynta, Pavel Šrut and Jan Vodňanský (i.e. ''If the Pig Had Wings'', ''Pastries'', ''How to hunt a Gorilla''). The former was made into a stage performance for Divadlo v Dlouhé, a theatre in Prague.

He was a son of the notable Czech translator Aloys Skoumal.

He died in 2014, aged 76. His funeral was held at the Strašnice Crematorium in Prague. Provided by Wikipedia
