“Our ensembles are subsidised by Arts Council England which enables us to be as inclusive as possible, provide high quality music making supported by professional tutors and conductors, whilst also offering fantastic value for money.”

Cadenza has continued to grow and provide even more opportunities for our young musicians. Now with 17 ensembles and classes catering to over 150 pupils from Ealing and beyond, and with manageable monthly rehearsals, Cadenza is the chosen music centre for many young musicians in West London.

Our ensembles rehearse monthly on a Saturday at Grange Primary School, Ealing. The centre opens at 8:30am and our ensembles and classes run from 9:00am throughout the day until our last rehearsal finishes at 5:30pm.

Cadenza prides itself on being a friendly, supportive and relaxed setting where young people come to learn and make high quality music with professional teachers and conductors. We are proud to provide a wide variety of excellent ensembles and look forward to welcoming you for the year 2024/25.

“We greatly appreciate the support and experience that Cadenza has given our daughter.”
