Stanković Music School in Belgrade was founded in 1911 under the auspices of HRH King Peter I Karađorđević. At first, it worked within the Singing Association" Stanković". It was named after the Serbian composer Kornelije Stanković, who was the first to introduce harmonics of the Serbian root and spiritual compositions. Many musical artists who are recognized today have passed through this school, and excellent educators and music experts taught at the school. The first school principal was Stanislav Binički.
In 1993, the school established the first jazz music department in Southeast Europe, as a visionary example for other regional institutions. The teaching staff consists of notable Serbian jazz musicians, and many students continued their education at prestigious jazz academies in Europe and the USA, as well as at the FMU in Belgrade.
