I'm an active freelance musician, playing with major orchestras in London, around the UK and elsewhere in Europe. I tailor the lessons to every individual and ensure a positive learning atmosphere for students of all ages and levels. Music has always been my passion and being able to express it has been an immense privilege.
My main instrument is clarinet but can also provide lessons in recorder, flute and saxophone. I follow the ABRSM Syllabus and can prepare you for a Graded Exam or a Diploma. In my teaching I refer to Paul Harris' Simultaneous Learning Method, which has proved to be the most successful technique.
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. During my final undergraduate year I also completed an Erasmus Exchange at the Paris Conservatory.
I teach at home in the beautiful surroundings of Lammas Green Estate, but am happy to travel to counties nearby such as Southwark and Bromley. Travelling is possible, but an additional fee to cover the expenses is required

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. Please check our website for more details.
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.

Perfect! Jernej is very patient and friendly. He gave my son, Daniel a great encouragement in studying the clarinet. Let him love to learn the clarinet. Thank you, Jernej.
Daniel is an extremely bright kid with attention for detail and well developed aural skills. Since the first lesson he showed positive approach and I look forward to see him grow as a musician.
Jernej is a patient, thoughtful and dedicated teacher who has helped me make real improvements in my playing. However big or small the difficulties, he was able to help me find a solution and is always kind and supportive. Highly recommended, whether you're a beginner or an advanced student!
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.
