“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/

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:


A firebird
My song
The Strings
I can no
