“Practice-Right is obviously outstanding. Stevan’s project is exactly what one means by “entrepreneurial initiative”: He has identified a real need in his field, has invented a clever and apparently effective way of addressing that need, and has been energetic and imaginative about building his idea into a real product.”  Visit – http://practice-right.com/

NEW MUSIC VIDEO RELEASE!

This project brings together two things that at first seem contradicting – Classical guitar and Dubstep musical style.  The idea was to create an exercise for a certain technical problem (in this case for playing scales) using a song or a theme from a song that you like.  This approach has endless possibilities, bringing something new and refreshing to your everyday practice routine.  In this way practicing is more fun and most importantly more productive!  This project inspired Serbian writer Ivan Glisic to write this poem:
THE OLD GUITARIST
A firebird
Snatches
My song
From
The Strings
I can no
Longer
Play,
And
Flies…

“Muzika” by Ivan Glišić

MUZIKA
(Stevanu Joviću)

Samo njoj otkrivaju
Svoje tajne,
Moje emocije
I moja čula,
Jer ona zna
Povereno da čuva.
Samo njoj veruju
Moje suze,
Jer ona iskreno kaže
Kad treba da presahnu,
A kad jače
Da se plače.
Ona me opominje
Da moje srce laže,
Kada kaže
Kako će svi oni
Koji u njemu ljubav traže,
Naći prazninu.
