The Faculty of Music in Belgrade is the oldest and the most prestigious music academy in Serbia. In Serbia today, there are few instrumental and vocal music performers, conductors, composers, music writers, theoreticians and music scientists, music editors and organizers of cultural life, or, generally speaking, people active in the field of art music and culture in any way, who did not benefit from education at the Faculty of Music in Belgrade to some extent. Thus the alumni of the Faculty are some of the foremost names at the contemporary international music scene: violinists Stefan Milenković, Roman Simović, Jovan Kolundžija and Sreten Krstić, pianists Aleksandar Madžar, Nataša Veljković, composers Isidora Žebeljan, Marko Nikodijević, Milica Paranosić, etc. – to name but a few.  
Eighty years have passed since the State Music Academy was founded by a Decree of the Minister of Education of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1937. In 1973 the institution was transformed into the Faculty of Music. Today, the studies are organized for approximately 1,000 students, future professional musical performers, composers, scientists and pedagogues from all over Serbia and region, at the levels of undergraduate, master, specialist and doctoral academic studies within thirteen Departments, the youngest of which is the Department for Jazz and Popular Music, founded five years ago. The Faculty of Music is the only music academy in Serbia with study programs for all symphony orchestra instruments and for all modules of music science – musicology, ethnomusicology, music theory and music pedagogy.    
The quality and academic results of the students and staff of the Faculty of Music are recognized internationally. Therefore, the Faculty has developed successful international collaboration with high music schools and academies from all over the world, either through partnerships established within the programs Erasmus +, Tempus, Creative Europe, or within intensive programs of international academic exchange of students and lecturers which are established with a number of European universities.
However, the Faculty of Music celebrates its eightieth anniversary still confined to the same inadequate building where it begun its public, educational and artistic life decades ago.
The Faculty of Music in Belgrade marks its jubilee in 2017 with a sequence of concerts, exhibitions, scientific symposia, promotions of its publications (books and CDs); a new web site of the Faculty has been launched, and the monograph about the institution is in preparation, as well as many other activities which gather together former and current professors and students of the Faculty. The crowning event will be the gala concert on 21 November, to mark the day when the Faculty opened its doors for the first time
