Hiya, nice to e-meet you!

I am a professional teacher, trumpeter and conductor who graduated from the Royal College of Music (2022) and The University of Edinburgh (2018), both with First class degrees.

In the past year, I have worked with BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Czech Chamber Philharmonic, Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic among others. I’ve also worked with Sir Thomas Allen, Sir Antonio Pappano, Maxim Vengerov, Martyn Brabbins, Jac van Steen, and Ryan Bancroft.

I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to study and learn from many fantastic teachers from around the globe. Sharing all these experiences and the different approaches brings me great joy and that’s why I love teaching people like yourself.

I’d love to hear about you, your experiences and goals so I can help you be the best musician you can be and have lots of fun with music!

Have a lovely day,


Happy students = happy me.

'Ondrej is excellent at setting the right goal posts for your level: challenging, but not so challenging as to be discouraging. He has a discerning eye and ear and knows how to direct his advice to see immediate results.' - Lauren (student)

I always do my best to create a supportive, stress-free environment so that the students can have a really fun time learning, while encouraging them to expand their capabilities at a pace that suits them best.
