Music Theory and Practical Musicianship Lessons in South London by an Experienced Freelance Orchestral Musician

Methodology

I'm an active freelance musician, playing with major orchestras in London, around the UK and elsewhere in Europe. I tailor the lessons to my student's needs and ensure a positive learning atmosphere.

As well as teaching various woodwind instruments I provide lessons in general musicianship which are based on Paul Harris' Simultaneous Learning Method. These lessons are an essential supplement to every instrumentalist and will help students broaden their musical understanding.

In lesson we work on selection of aural skills including rhythm, parlato, sight singing, chord recognition, memorisation, improvisation and general theory knowledge.

Background

I have been visiting teacher in German School in Richmond, Every Child a Musician in Newham, Waldorf School Ljubljana and Music School Idrija (both in Slovenia) and have held educational workshops with children from Netley Primary School in London.

Together with a violist and educator Jill Valentine I have co-founded a teaching collective Lammas Green Music Studio, where we provide individually tailored lessons to students of all ages and abilities in our area. We also encourage classical music though community events and presentations for children.

I am an experienced orchestral musician and regularly perform with major London orchestras (London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia, Sinfonia of London), other UK orchestras (Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Royal Scottish National, Halle, Royal Northern Sinfonia, Bournemouth Symphony) and orchestras abroad (Slovenian Philharmonic, Irish Chamber, RTE Symphony, Wexford Opera).

I hold an up-to-date DBS Check provided by Every Child a Musician and can provide it on request.

If required, I am also able to include in my lessons knowledge of French, German, Slovene and Serbian language.

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.
