Cadenza is changing the way students and teachers interact with each other during the week. As a result, traditional studio lessons are taught, and teachers and students can communicate with each other during the week, as needed.

"It's great to have someone to help you learn and guide you through your journey with the piano," said Saganowich.

Cadenza funding was provided by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and the Canada Foundation for Innovation.
