Real Life Cello Stories Classes

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

Lead by Becky, Martha and Sarah – musicians (cello and violin), storytellers and experienced early years educators, we can’t wait to see you at our top notch preschooler classes. Cello Stories sessions 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 freshly washed individual kit bags for every child, with visual aids and take-home colouring sheets, with classes running 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 finishing 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! We’ve been recently joined by the wonderful Sarah and her violin – a professional violinist and passionate teacher with London Music Masters, and her classes feature the violin. We aim that our sessions are inclusive and welcoming to all children and families. There are discount tickets available for all classes if finance is a barrier to participating.
