Real Life Cello Stories Classes

The home of Beanstalk Arts is South East London, and after this very peculiar, topsy turvy, year, from the Autumn term 2021 we have a full timetable in action with classes every day of the week, with Becky and Martha both leading different sessions! 

Cello Stories 

These are our original Beanstalk Arts classes! Every week we have a different story, told through cello tunes, ukulele songs music and movement. The classes are interactive, covid secure (distancing and limited numbers will remain in most venues until at least Christmas 2021) and packed to the rafters with music and imagination, with the aim that they’re enjoyable for both your little folks AND the accompanying grown up. We have live instruments, a mixture of original songs and preschooler favourites and no cheesy backing tracks. There are no shared musical instruments, but an individual music and prop bag is provided (and thoroughly washed between sessions!) or you have the option to buy your own from us, or bring your own instruments! We tend to fill up well in advance, particularly with the limited numbers with covid, so do book ahead…
