The Cadenza PIANO FESTIVAL 2024 provides students with new and exciting experiences beyond the weekly lessons that they take during the year. These two weeks will have a positive and lasting effect on their enjoyment and commitment to their music training. 

1.  Meet other piano students and play four-hand duets.

 

2.  Learn about the great composers, their lives, works and listen to their master pieces.

3.  Sing in group solfege with our very own solfege melodies. This training also includes an introduction to conducting patterns.

4.  Listen to live concerts daily with different musicians.

5.  See a piano technician in action tuning a piano and explaining what is inside the instrument, part by part. 

6. Prepare a FINAL CONCERT in only two weeks! Learn piano duets, new solo pieces, solfege melodies and have a role in a mini play on a composer's life.

7. And much much more!

A Musical Journey for young audiences

Martin Söderberg's "A Musical Journey for young audiences" is a fresh, new approach to the presentation of classical piano music with the purpose of helping to create a new generation of classical music listeners and lovers. The word "Journey" is used at different levels. First, each musical composition is a journey from the first to the last note as I guide the young listener through each piece. Second, the entire recital is a trip from the first piece to the last, traveling from composer to composer, country to country, period to period, as I create the musical thread that holds it all together. Ultimately, this leads to a more personal, deeper, inner "Musical Journey" that the young listener takes through his/her own enjoyment, appreciation and understanding of the music.

In Martin 
Söderberg's "A Musical Journey", the young audience is invited to take on an active role by asking questions, making comments, sharing experiences, etc. Each piano piece is introduced with a brief commentary, which includes:

1. Short composer's bio
2. Explaining the piano work
3. Giving the audience a specific assignment or focus point.

Every presentation includes prizes, a raffle, a musical quiz to be taken at the end, as well as a Q & A with the artist, depending on the age and type of audience. It's a short event, lasting 30-45 minutes only, including performance, commentaries and audience participation.

After you attend one of my "Musical Journeys for young audiences" and if your child enjoyed it, please feel free to share this page with friends and potential presenters you may know in schools, museums, libraries, churches, etc. My concerts for kids are free. Voluntary donations are accepted from families, classical music lovers or institutions, which will help create a concert fund for the purpose of presenting these events frequently to young audiences everywhere, especially in underprivileged, underserved communities. For that reason, any donation in any amount is greatly appreciated. Institutions or Companies that may want to become a sponsor of this project with a generous annual donation, will receive credit in all my programs, website, social media, press releases and promotional materials.
