You have been the sunshine in my education.

- Maria Elizabeth Niño Vanegas

She allowed us to seek, follow and grow in our own musical path. She made us work but let us have a lot of fun.

I've had the grandest experience working with Milica at Paracademia. Her guidance and positive critique helped me to hone my creativity and skills when preparing portfolio for Sonic Arts Masters Program I have been successfully accepted to. Her approach to "sensing" the students as well as "sensing" their composition aesthetic is uncanny and proved invaluable.

As a singer/cellist, composer and collaborative musician I jumped at the opportunity to be mentored by Milica. Her extensive knowledge and experience as a performer, composer and collaborative multimedia artist inspired me to think outside the box with regards to my creative approach.  I was able to delve deeper into my craft and discover new ways to present my art.  As a result I became a successful applicant on the London Symphony Orchestra Soundhub Composers Scheme leading to a commission with an ensemble of players from the orchestra.  I am deeply grateful for her generosity and intuitive guidance.
