At Zvučni Planet, we help you to learn and play with confidence. We combine the best of classical and new teaching methods in lessons adjusted to your individual pace. Our courses for children introduce them to musical styles and traditions from across the world.
Zvučni Planet takes a completely individual approach with each student, there are no exams or official achievement levels.
We judge success by whether our students and teachers are happy with progress.
Our team is made up of professional musicians, singers and music teachers, all with many years of invaluable teaching experience.
No one can learn to play an instrument overnight. Learning music is a long-term project, and teaching is about building good teacher-student relationships. Some of our students have been with their teacher from first grade to secondary school graduation!
You can start learning an instrument at Zvučni Planet without entering formal education. If children wish to continue in the state system, transition is easy – all our pupils have passed music school auditions.
Our students come from all over the world!
Meet people from different countries and cultures with an interest in music.
Meet the teacher and talk about your aims and expectations. Learn how to position your hands on the instrument, and make your first sounds!
Now you will learn basic playing techniques. Get a feel for the instrument, practise the right posture, learn to produce a quality sound.
If you want to make progress, you will need to have your own instrument. We provide advice on instruments for beginners and what size to buy for children. Violin pupils: we offer instruments for rent (sizes 1/8 to 1/1).
Twenty to thirty minutes a day is about right to start with. Practice every second day will still develop playing skills. Less: progress will be slower.
Learning to read music is part of your lesson (we offer an extra group lesson for children). Learn to read notes, masterbasic rhythm, and play your first pieces!
Lessons are once or twice a week. You will develop your playing skills at your own pace. Your teacher will help you to play with confidence.
Zvučni Planet organises two annual concerts for students – or simply play for your family and friends!
People often link the concept of talent to learning a musical instrument. Violinist Hrvoje Budak says having talent is good, but talent without putting in effort doesn’t go far.
Online tutorials are often informative and fun. But only interaction with a ‘real’ teacher will start you off correctly, and there’s the motivation factor, too. Here’s what guitarist Hrvoje Sudar thinks about ‘live’ lessons versus video…
Learning a musical instrument usually gets off to an enthusiastic start. But finding the time and the motivation to practise isn’t always easy. Pianist Marina Matolić says playing a little every day is better than a long session once a week.
Developing your singing voice means using muscles you probably didn’t even realise you had! Soprano Amela Jančić Priganica has encouragement for anyone who would like to sing but has held back until now.
We offer individual tuition and tuition in small groups (two to three pupils).
For classical instruments we recommend additional music theory from year two.
