He continued his education at the Ljubljana Music and Ballet Conservatory (piano and musical composition), and completed his studies at the Academy of Music in Ljubljana in 2018, and received his master’s degree with special recognition summa cum laude with prof.

For his academic achievements, he received the Škerjanc Award of the Ljubljana Music and Ballet Conservatory (2013), and the Prešeren Award (2017) for the performance of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Concerto No. 4 for Piano and Orchestra; the award review stated that “the pianist played the concert in great style, technically, rhythmically and musically sovereign, with a beautiful and sounding tone, and a great deal of artistic invention and creativity.” During his studies, Tim Jančar also performed with the RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra, the Giuseppe Tartini Conservatory Chamber Orchestra from Trieste, and the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra. In May 2016, under the auspices of the Bank Austria, he gave an independent recital in Vienna as a part of the concert cycle Piano Forte – The Next Generation. The performance was evaluated in superlatives in the Slovak music magazine Hudobný život (“Tim Jančar is an intellectual-musical musician with a personal, deeply interpreted mark. His performance was absolutely mature, cogent, focused and inspiring.”).
The pianist is also active in the field of chamber music (Ad hoc trio). He regularly attends international seminars with renowned professors such as Ruben Dalibaltayan, Johannes Kropfitsch, Claudio Martínez Mehner, Markus Schirmer, Boris Berman, Avedis Kouyoumdjian, Eliso Virsaladze, and others.
