Independent Music Tuition


Momir Novakovic, MA in Music Pedagogy
Music Teacher at BISS; Former Prof. at Music Academy ADM in Lugano, Switzerland

Momir Novakovic holds a Master of Arts in Music Pedagogy degree from Swiss Music Conservatory of Lugano (Switzerland). He is known internationally as a music pedagog and classical accordion soloist. Momir is the winner of world’s most prestigious classical accordion competition “Coupe Mondial” and was the first ever accordionist to perform at the EU parliament in Brussels. Having worked in several music schools in Switzerland as well as at the University of Lugano, he specialised in music pedagogy with both children and adults.
For more information about Momir Novakovic please visit www.momirnovakovich.com

Teaching subjects:
- Piano
- Accordion
- Guitar (basic level) - Music Theory
- Solfeggio (Aural)/Singing
- Elementary Music Education (Theory, Solfeggio and Music History and Styles combined,
including introducing all classical instruments)*

- Band/Orchestra

Instrument lessons are individual and you can choose whether you would like a 30, 45 or 60 minute lesson (the teacher will give an evaluation and you can chose to have shorter lesson, but not longer than what he recommends for the child).

Theory, Solfeggio and EME can be held as individual or group lessons but can also be taken in addition to instrument lessons at a special price for students who are already subscribed with an instrument.

Band/Orchestra will be organised project-based during the school year (the school will provide further information).

Music theory and aural are part of the instrument training, but the additional music theory knowledge is strongly advised for those studying a music instrument. It speeds up the process of learning and helps making instrument lessons more efficient and motivating.

Prices for individual lessons:
30 minutes - 300NOK
45 minutes - 450 NOK
60 minutes - 600 NOK
(semestral packages come with a discount)

Prices for group lessons (M. Theory, Solfeggio, EME):

45 minutes (PYP) - 200 NOK
60 minutes (MYP) - 300 NOK

Each student will have a personalised programme set at the highest pedagogical and methodic standards that can have different goals (i.e. ABRSM exam, body coordination development, general culture, pleasure etc.). General evaluation and advising are free of charge for BISS students.

BISS employees and siblings have a special discount.
