Music has always been my passion and being able to express it through clarinet has always been a privilege and joy. I am happily sharing my experience and approach to students of all ages and levels (beginner to post Grade 8).
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I mainly teach Bb clarinet and also offer lessons in both most common auxiliary versions (Eb and Bass clarinet). I can provide lessons in recorder and music theory to any level. I am ready to coach any type of chamber music and provide my insight in meditation. I have intermediate knowledge of French and German language and can integrate them in lessons if needed.

I have graduated with distinction in undergraduate programme BMus(Hons) and postgraduate programme MA at the Royal Academy of Music. I have also been awarded DipRAM which is an institutional prize awarded to students for an outstanding performance in a Postgraduate Level Final Recital.

I charge £40 pounds per hour for clarinet, chamber music lessons and recorder. However I do charge extra if long distance travelling to your home is required. My rates for music theory and meditation are £30 and £20 respectively. I do offer discount on any consultation lesson, please contact me for more information.
- Where do you teach?
I teach at home, but am happy to travel to counties nearby which include Lewisham, Southwark and Bromley. Travelling further is possible, but additional fee to cover my travel would be required.

I am an open minded and caring teacher who always tries to bring out full potential in each student regardless their current knowledge. Together we can find your way in music and enjoy it as much as possible!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have overseen students with their preparation for their music college admission in the past and am improving my skills and approaches as a beginner teacher. I have been visiting teacher in Waldorf School Ljubljana and Music School Idrija (both in Slovenia) and have held workshops with children from Netley Primary School in London. I am very passionate for orchestral music and I regularly perform with orchestras such as London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Halle Orchestra and Sinfonia Cymru.

Jernej is a brilliant clarinettist and teacher. He has helped me pinpoint my weakness and has encouraged me to play the music that I enjoy. He has helped me improve the cohesion of my playing by coming up with specific warm-up exercises and by giving me ways of approaching tricky passages. For every fault in my playing he will come up with a way to tackle it, resulting in rapid improvements in my playing. He never fails to send a follow up email after each lesson detailing my next steps, helping
I have known Jernej since I took the clarinet for the first time. His teaching method is wonderful and inspirational. The classes are great fun as he brings new ideas and techniques all the time. He encourages me with positive feedback all the time. After each class, he follows up with a written email with the main points from the session. Very professional and likeable.
