Biography:

Jozef Gaszka is an organist from Surrey with a scholarship to study the organ at the Royal Academy of Music from 2019-2023. What makes his accomplishment even more remarkable is that the then 18-year old Jozef only started learning the organ when he joined King Edward’s school at 14. The opportunity to study at the Academy is testament to his dedication and hard work.

Since his successful audition at the Academy in November 2018 his achievements on the keyboard have continued to amass. A week after the audition he took the Associate of Royal Schools Music Diploma and passed with a distinction scoring an almost perfect 49 marks out of 50. Following the Christmas break, he competed in The London Organ Competition at St Clement Danes winning the second prize and along with it, the opportunity to give a number of recitals countrywide.

Jozef enjoys preforming a wide range of repertoire and played regularly for school assembly and Chapel Choir events. Over the last few years Jozef has had the opportunity to perform extensively and has seen him give recitals and engagements at some of the most prestigious institutions in this country and indeed abroad. These include – Chapel Royal, Hampton Court, St Lawrence Jewry next Guildhall, Chichester and Guildford Cathedrals, Basilica of Sant’Anselmo Rome and Basilica St Paul’s outside the walls Rome.

Jozef has enjoyed much success in competitions, culminating recently in winning several challenge cups at the Godalming Music Festival. Jozef was employed as one of the organists at St John’s Church, Farncombe for two years. Having completed his A-levels in Music, Art and Religious Studies he will now pass on this position as he takes up his place on the four-year course at the Royal Academy in September 2019.
