About this pro

Playing the piano can be a wonderfully fulfilling activity for all! No matter how old you are or how much time you have during a day, YOU CAN master this skill to the level of enjoyment! Do not miss the chance to experience all the magic you can create for yourself and people around you!

Along with that, music theory and ear training lessons can improve your musical performance and knowledge about music.

I am a music teaching assistant at the University of Miami where I am a graduate student in musicology. Also, I graduated musicology and double bass at the University of Arts in Belgrade. Parallel to these studies in Miami, I am finishing my Ph.D. dissertation in musicology at the University of Arts in Belgrade. In my scholar work, I deal with questions of musical interpretation and performance putting the emphasis on style and historical performance. Furthermore, I have been playing the piano and teaching music for more than 15 years. Also, I taught music theory (harmony, music form, counterpoint, ear training, and history of music) in Music High School Stankovic in Belgrade from 2013 to 2017. Thus, I encourage my piano students to analyze and talk about the piece that is played or to discuss anything they are interested in music in general.

Music is a movement, an emotion, an ingenious thought, and an extraordinary way of communication! And all those little details that it possess have been lightened in many different ways by the students I taught - that is what inspires me the most in a teaching process. 

Thus, I am looking forward to enjoying playing and learning music together with you!

    Nevena is a fantastic person. I really liked that she knows how to tailor her experience of working in a school to individual lessons. She is sensitive to my learning pace, and is able to help me understand concepts I thought were beyond my comprehension. 5 STARS!



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to hear what are some music interests of my new student so that I can prepare for our next classes and make the hard process of playing fun at the start. Also, working on the basic postures and technique, in the beginning, I find the most important. That makes playing afterward way to easier. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have played music for 22 years. I play the accordion, percussion, but I completed my education in double bass and in piano as part of music theory and musicology school programs. I graduated musicology at the University of Arts in Belgrade in 2013 and double bass in 2017. So far, I performed classical, jazz, film, and popular music with several symphony and chamber orchestras and music ensembles. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

The pricing system is standard, and it is related to a half an hour, hour, and an hour and a half lessons. If I meet with the student regularly (at least once a week) during some period of time, the price can be reduced. 


How did you get started teaching?

I started giving lessons to my friends 15 years ago, when I was in high school, because I was a music nerd. After I graduated musicology, I worked for four years in a music high school in Belgrade before I moved to Miami.


What types of students have you worked with?

I worked with children, teenagers, and young grown-ups. My wish is to give lessons to people of all age, especially those who always wanted to learn to play.
