Cadenza: The Evolution of a Digital Music Education Tool

Rena Upitis, Philip Abrami

Abstract

This paper describes the evolution of Cadenza, a digital music tool designed to inspire and assist students with practising between music lessons. Cadenza was developed using an evidence-based research and design model, supported by funding for both the research and software design. The focus of the present case study is on how Cadenza has continued to thrive after the research funding period ended, through a community-based not-for-profit organizational structure housed within the auspices of the host research institution. In an era where technology transfer has become a goal for many post-secondary institutions, this case study illuminates both the advantages and pitfalls of creating a start-up enterprise under the umbrella of an established university.
