"My student is definitely benefiting from Cadenza since I started capturing and annotating, “Good! Play THIS way every time!” moments from her lessons. After a few months of unhelpful in-lesson correction/demonstration, I started using the video capture feature and WOW, it’s made a big difference in only a couple of weeks!"

"Cadenza is an excellent digital tool to help music teachers and their students organize music teaching/learning with ease. I wish I had this tool available to me when I was studying music! It’s especially helpful when life gets too busy. As I work towards my Master's of Health Science, I hope to share this digital tool with my many musical classmates in our Institute of Medical Science."

Our Teachers Say...

"We love Cadenza. My child struggles to stay on task and keep focused. This tool keeps her on track. Distraction leads to a feeling of being unaccomplished. With Cadenza, my child can watch her progress and rate herself, giving her a sense of accomplishment and boosting her confidence. I call it the IEP for music training."
