I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Milos during the past year. He is an outstanding musician, clarinet instructor and an amazing person. Milos is really devoted and compromised to his students and is 100% of the time willing to help them improve in the instrument. I strongly recommend him to all students of any ages and levels of playing!

In addition to being a superb clarinetist, Milos is a wise and kind teacher. His maturity and sensitivity enable him to help his students develop their talent regardless of their age and level of experience. He has a wonderful sense of humor and a keen intelligence. He has my highest endorsement.

Milos is a great teacher and a great player! He is very supportive, knowledgeable, and dedicated and kids just love him. He explains everything very carefully and always demonstrates with such a beautiful sound. Whether you are a beginner, or more advanced student, Milos would definitely be a great teacher for you. He knows all about the clarinet, the repertoire, including both solo and chamber music, and whether you are 8 years old or 58 years old, I am sure you would learn a lot from Milos!

I have known Milos for 16 years now, I've worked with him in a same school for several years and I've played with him for over a decade in quartet “Nevsky”. He is devoted to music and his performance is always inspiring. As patient and dedicated professor of clarinet, he had a lot of success with his students. Being an open mind performer who is playing a broad spectrum of styles, he is equally good with students who wants to learn classic music, as with those who want to learn world music ( ethno, jazz…).
