Hello and welcome to the Cadenza Music Center. My name is Martin Soderberg, pianist/teacher/author. Together with my wife pianist/teacher/composer Cecilia Yibirin, we are the school owners/directors. Students that wish to study piano at Cadenza Music Center have a choice between two programs, the Exposure Program and the Professional Piano Program.



(Available in person and online)

For young piano students that want to learn at a comfortable pace, keeping their own personal needs in mind. This program allows the necessary time for students to develop their piano skills and it is designed to motivate them to eventually reach a more professional level. They will be prepared to perform when they feel ready and as often as they wish in our monthly recitals. Lessons will be given by one of our dedicated piano teachers.

In addition to our Exposure Piano Program, which accepts students of all ages and levels, The Cadenza Professional Piano Program is designed for the talented young pianist who wants to excel in exams, competitions, auditions and recitals. Students that sign up for this unique program will take lessons exclusively with one of our concert pianist and pedagogue directors with more than 40 years of experience  training young pianists worldwide (See pictures below). Participants will have the opportunity to develop their musical talent and performance readiness to the highest level by regularly performing in our performance classes, monthly master classes as well as other recitals and performance opportunities.

Besides specialized piano training of the highest level, students and their parents will also receive training on career development through a series of private consultations, workshops and seminars on the subject. Talented young pianists who wish to venture into the performing career need guidance from a professional pianist regarding a number of issues (See the eBook PIANIST by our professor Martin Soderberg). A music career is developed step by step and it is important to know not only what steps to take, but to determine when we are ready to take them.


In the last 40 years, Martin Sodeberg has helped thousands of talented piano students from all over the world become professional pianists as well as successful piano teachers with his own personal approach to teaching piano. (See his eBooks on the subject below, which are available on Amazon)
