In theSecondary Music School at the age of 16 he started to sing in the Orthodox church choir and hasbeen regularly singing for ten years. In that period, he wrote some compositions for a capella choir which were used in the church services and it is with the church choir that he gained his first conducting experiences. From a very early age he accompanied his father on the piano, an amateur opera singer, performing baritone opera arias and songs, and until today he accompanies opera singers on the piano on a regular basis.

Interested in reviving forgotten works, in 2015 he made a new orchestration and edition of the forgotten Serbian opera “Prince Ivo of Semberia” by the Serbian composer Isidor Bajić. For that work he has been awarded the Special price of the Serbian National Theatre in Novi Sad. His orchestrations were tremendously well received and after first performance they were very soon performed again with different orchestras. Aleksandar Kojić has been répétiteur from 2010 and also has the position of the permanent conductor at the Opera and at the Ballet of the Serbian National Theatre in Novi Sad, conducting numerous opera and ballet works. With his vast knowledge of musical literature and work with opera and symphonic orchestras he is capable of improving the orchestra sound and bringing it to a higher level in a very short time. Also, he is often called to step-in, at a very short notice with or without rehearsals. Kojić has received several awards for conducting new productions - to name just two, Queen of Spades in 2012 and Simone Boccanegra in 2013).
