Our History

Rooted in a long tradition of music education and supported by many years of experience in teaching, performing and music publishing, Milos Sajin and the Shine Music School established a specialised guitar school in Barcelona, Spain in 2008.

The Shine School of Music Barcelona was established with the primary goal of providing quality guitar education and was the first specialised guitar school in Barcelona to offer Guitar Classes in all styles of guitar with a qualified and experienced guitar teacher in English, Spanish and Catalan. The school offers exceptional guitar training for all ages and levels in all guitar styles: Classical, Flamenco, Blues, Jazz, Folk / Pop / Rock, Acoustic / Electric and Bass Guitar. While Guitar continues to be the predominant instrument at the Barcelona school, over the years we have introduced other instruments to our school such as Piano, Bass, Keyboard, Drums, Saxophone, Music Theory and more while maintaining a high standard in private music tuition.

Originally founded by Milos’s father, Professor Strahinja Sajin, who opened The Shine School of Music in Johannesburg, South Africa in January 1993, Shine expanded to Barcelona and also began its online school 15 years later. The Prof still teaches at the school and offers selected students a wealth of knowledge in music in a variety of instruments. Shine School of Music continues to hold annual concerts both in South Africa and in Barcelona, with many of the most recent concerts streamed live online.
