Dear members of the Berklee community,
Since 2006, Vuk has been a constant presence at Berklee. During his 11 years, he taught several counterpoint and orchestration courses, as well as directed study. Born in Sarajevo, in the former Yugoslavia in 1946, he studied piano and composition at Ljubljana Music Academy in Slovenia and later at Belgrade Music Academy, where he received his Master of Arts in music composition. He also studied with Milko Kelemen in Stuttgart, Germany. During his studies, the popular approach to composition was in 12-tone technique introduced to the world by Arnold Schoenberg. This had little impact on Vuk, since he was writing in a minimalist style before it was given that moniker and popularized by composers Steve Reich and Philip Glass.
