Real Life Cello Stories Classes

**Real life classes in SE London are back to full timetable*

Lead by Becky and Martha – cellists, storytellers and experienced early years educators, we can’t wait to see you at our preschooler classes. Cello stories are 40 minute long high quality sessions for children with their parents or carers – each week we’ll explore a new story, with every session is packed full of song, live music and interactive music making, with Covid safe individual kit bags, in large, safe venues. Becky, director of Beanstalk Arts, can also be found this term leading family sessions at the Royal Albert Hall and British Library, and Martha is as professional teacher, singer and currently studying her Masters at the Royal College of Music, and we aim to bring top quality musicianship, pedagogical knowledge of early childhood and also lots of JOY to all our sessions!
