Guitar faculty member Petar Jankovic was invited by Guitar Art Festival and Guitar Association in Serbia, prestigious guitar organizations in Southeast Europe, to develop a guitar elective community program titled “Creative Guitar Course.” During 2012, Jankovic traveled to Serbia on several occasions to provide the full curriculum, model of instruction, teacher training, and to help develop a business plan for the project. As a result, more than 100 community members in Belgrade, the Serbian capital, have successfully finished the first level of this course.
The program is currently being expanded to five additional cities in Eastern Serbia: Bor, Majdampek, Zajecar, Knjazevac, and Negotin. Creative Guitar Course is supported by the United States Embassy in Serbia.
