« These last few years have not only confirmed but also reinforced my first impressions of Miodrag : he is now a confirmed performer who plays all the repertoires in a unique, talented and mature style. He is now an international caliber player at every level » Judicael Perroy, Paris
Born in Sarajevo (Bosnia-Herzegovina) and now a Canadian citizen, Miodrag started playing the guitar at age 7, guided by his father Zdravko. He continued playing during the civil war years, and started his public career soon after by winning his National Guitar Competition 3 years in a row (1998 to 2000). In 1999, as the best student at his music school, he was chosen to perform the Vivaldi Concerto at the age of 14.
He and his family moved to Quebec City, Canada in 2001. He continued his studies at the Conservatoire de musique de Québec in 2002 with Paul-André Gagnon and later with Rémi Boucher at the Competition level.
