The Royal Conservatory just sent out a message telling teachers about Cadenza, an online notebook that streamlines the process of making lesson notes and motivates students to practise. Feedback about the tool, from teachers and students and parents, has been very positive. We’re excited that so many teachers across Canada have now heard about this digital resource for the first time.
It’s simple, and it’s free.
And not just teachers in Canada. A organization in the United Kingdom called The Curious Piano Teachers is hosting a four-week blog on Cadenza. The second installment came out today. Check it out at by clicking here. Today’s blog contains the nitty-gritty details about how to sign up for an account.
Here’s how. Go to the Cadenza website (www.cadenzamusictool.ca), and sign in with your google account. Students choose the student view, and teachers choose… wait for it… yes! … the teacher view.
Teachers invite students into their studio by adding the student’s gmail account through their Cadenza homepage. Once the student accepts the invitation (through Cadenza, not gmail), the teacher and student are linked – and the fun begins. View a video about how to link student and teacher accounts on the video support page on the menu bar.
Cadenza only starts working when a student and a teacher are linked through their own Cadenza homepages.
At the lesson, the teacher opens his or her account, and clicks on the new lesson icon for the student. Then the tool prompts the teacher to select a task. These tasks range from repertoire to technique, ear and sight, as well as theory and improvisation or composition.
