BIOGRAPHY

Vildana Repše, academic musician, violinist and professor of violin, was born in Sarajevo into the Smailović family of recognized musicians. She studied violin in the class of Professor Dejan Bravničar at the Academy of Music in Ljubljana, where she received her degree.
Ms. Repše devotes herself, with exceptional interest and success, to teaching music at the Tartini Musical Studio in Ljubljana, the first private music school in Slovenia, which she established together with Vlado Repše in 1990.
She is the author of several textbooks and manuals, a lecturer at seminars and international conferences, and a researcher in the methodology of violin playing as well as a mentor to young music teachers.
As a genuine admirer of orchestral music, she has focused her artistic activities on playing in the orchestras of the RTV Ljubljana Symphony Orchestra and the Slovenian Philharmonic, the Tartini Chamber Orchestra, the Musica Ad Hominem string ensemble, and since 2010 in the Camerata Medica string orchestra, where she has assumed the role of concertmaster

Non-formal Forms of Learning in a Professional Development of Violin Playing.

Although non-formal education does not generally meet formal conditions for advancing to higher grades and levels of formal education, it is recognized as a form that has a significant impact on the development of competencies. More so, it furthers the development of young learners.
In this paper, I will present the power of non-formal education on the choice of a profession and on the preservation of knowledge and skills acquired in schools for the needs of amateur music activities. I will show that non-formal education of children should in no way be understood as “entertainment without necessary progress” which does not require responsible, methodically based pedagogical judgment and program management. The wave of exciting interest in new knowledge captures participants in non-formal forms of learning only when they realize that this learning serves their development of violin playing and the development of their own artistic potentials.
