Bio

Milica Jankovic developed a love for music in the family home, where from an early age she was surrounded by instruments such as piano and accordion. Her mother, also a professor of music, was constantly playing the piano and in that way she motivated Milica and her brother to want to play the piano as well. After home education, Milica enrolled in “dr Miloje Milojevic” Music School in Kragujevac, piano department. She completed her primary and secondary music education in the class of professor Sanja Vukosavljevic Milenic. During her schooling, she participated in many national and international competitions and participated in all major school ceremonies.

After graduating from High school and a successful graduation concert, Milica Jankovic enrolled at the Faculty of Music, University of Belgrade and became a student of a successful Serbian pianist, professor Lidija Stankovic. During her studies, she perfected her virtuoso, artistic abilities, developed pedagogical skills, upgraded her knowledge of music history and, most importantly, met herself as a chamber performer.

During her student years, Milica had a significant collaboration, which was accompanied by numerous performances with her brother, cellist Nemanja Stankovic (Grand Stage of the Kolarac Concert Hall / Belgrade, Belgrade City Assembly, Yugoslav Drama Theater stage). Within the project “Educational Concerts”, under the patronage of the Ministry of Education and the Swedish institution for academic development “SiDa”, they held concerts in Serbian cities. In May 2017, the duo renewed collaboration at the Serbian Cultural Center in Paris.

Since 2010, Milica has been actively collaborating with soprano Ljubica Gasparovic Jevtovic. This duo participated in the concert “Russian Night” in the Russian House in Belgrade, and in numerous performances in the Ceremonial Hall of the First Kragujevac Gymnasium. Also, the duo held an all-night concert in April 2012.

She has attended numerous courses with renowned artists: Yuri Kot (Ukraine), Dorian Leljak (Serbia), Irina Alekseychuk (Ukraine) – chamber music, Rita Kinka (Serbia), Boris Kraljevic (Montenegro).
She is the winner of the scholarship of the city of Kragujevac “Dragoslav Srejović”, which is awarded to students with an exceptional average (2006, 2007 and 2008). She is also the winner of the scholarship of the Ministry of Youth and Sports for a thousand of the best students of the Republic of Serbia (2009).

Milica Jankovic is one of the founders of the Music Youth Association-Kragujevac. From February 2016 to December 2017, she was the President and General Manager of the Association and in that period she designed and organized the First Festival of Music Youth – Kragujevac, with an idea of starting the tradition of biennial festivals. Also, she has achieved successful cooperation of this association with other art associations and independent artists in order to organize master classes for pupils and students from Kragujevac and the surrounding area.

In addition to complete piano studies and pedagogical achievements in this field, Milica wanted to gain knowledge about the organization of art events, promotion of works of art and artists themselves, as well as their media presentation. Thus, in 2014, she enrolled in master’s studies at the Faculty of Dramatic Arts, University of Belgrade, Department of Culture and Media Management. The dissertation is entitled “The impact of electronic media on children’s music literacy” and through it she managed to create a symbiosis between her many years of experience in pedagogy and what she learned in this direction, and that is the role of electronic media in children’s everyday life.

Her experience in working with children, 15 years long, has contributed to a wide range of pedagogical approaches that have changed in periods as she herself has matured and worked on cognition and personal pedagogical philosophy. As someone who has been in the music world since she was a child, Milica tries to open and show children that world full of imagination, tonal colors and rhythm, and to awaken in them a love for this art, for piano and other instruments, as well as for children literate and to make them loyal lovers of classical music, loyal visitors not only to music, but also to other artistic events.

Milica Jankovic has worked at the Music School “Dr. Miloje Milojevic” in Kragujevac, as a professor of piano and chamber music since 2007. She is currently employed in the Folsom Piano Academy, California.

What to expect

Through my fifteen years of experience, I met many different profiles of students, I worked with extremely gifted children and competitors, but also with children who wanted to educate themselves musically and one day become people who will be confident in their musical knowledge and be able to they play compositions they want and like. Therefore, I am sure that I can teach everyone the most basic musical parameters in a relatively short time and how to apply them. Also, with each lecture and new program, we will talk about music history and music theory, implementation in contemporary music and awareness of the tribal musical needs.
