Why Us?

Cesaroni Consulting identifies the next generation of classical musicians, matching them with teachers and institutions and guiding them through the application process from start to finish. We provide in-depth application and materials preparation, world-class network connections and high level industry access. Stewardship dall’inizio alla fine or from start to finish.

Why Now?

Applying for music school can be an opaque and stressful process with new and unforeseen challenges in today’s disrupted landscape. Counsellors and teachers are often ill-equipped to help aspiring young musicians and their families make informed choices. Our consultants’ international expertise guides each student through the complex prerequisite and application process, now entirely virtual, helping them prepare stand-out audition and supplemental materials. We then match each student with our network of teachers and institutions best suited to their unique talents and goals, offering complete preparation through: 

  • Individual assessment and one-on-one meetings (Parents welcome!)

  • Coaching sessions

  • Teacher matching, introduction and lesson scheduling 

  • Audition preparation 

  • Materials preparation including audition video 

  • Application preparation and optimization
