Cadenza International Summer Music School is now in its twenty second year and has many special qualities.
Teaching provision is generous and fair and, unusually, there is time to focus on both solo repertoire and daily chamber groups. A minimum of three individual lessons on each student's first study instrument is guaranteed, along with pianist rehearsals and concert opportunities.
Everyone plays in at least one chamber group which is coached not less than every second day. Repertoire plans can be made in advance, especially for pianists. Groups and partnerships can evolve flexibly during the week - the coaching timetable is arranged in two day cycles by mutual consent.
