Are you looking for a high-energy group class program introducing young people to the wonders of classical and folk music? Experience a cello only class program that plants musical learning seeds in your child that will help them grow into active cello learners. Music can develop your child’s confidence, creativity and independence.

Drawing on over thirty years experience as a music educator and her own experience as a parent, Louise King has developed the new Youth Beginner Cello Class program to appeal to and engage busy active young minds and fingers.  If you are looking for a music class that develops the whole child through learning music – cognitive, physical, emotional, language and musical skills – then you are in the right hands.

Youth Cello Ensemble Class is ideal for kids ages 6-11 in primary school or home-schooled families and designed for kids who think meeting new friends who play cello would be fun. Come and make music in a jam-packed activity class!

what is in a class?

Using powerful imaginative resources and engaging music games, Cello Dreaming knows how to tap into your child’s creative spirit to develop learning strengths, creativity and musical confidence.

Music Games Playful music activities integrated to music literacy, vocal development, listening games, rhythm and games that develop muscular control and body co-ordination.

Singing Activities include a mixture of musical styles and well-known songs to allow your child to explore their voice. Singing helps develop your child’s pitch recognition, memory and recall, physical development and sense of well-being.

Storytelling and Literacy Each class is built on the concept of a musical element, story, or topic. Let your child experience a fully integrated educational experience through the power of music.

Parent Involvement  Your child is learning to be self-sufficient in a group setting of peers, whilst taking comfort from knowing their parent is close by. Parents or caregivers are welcome to participate in the last 10 minutes of each class so as to support the student with the At-Home Resources ensuring the learning can continue at home with your child’s best teacher—you!


Under the expert guidance of professional musician, educator and mother Louise King, your child will be introduced to the delights of classical music and the fun and excitement of learning how to play the cello.

Friends and family have the chance to listen, watch and support your child’s musical development in the annual public concert performance at the end of the school year.

“Perfect for home schooled children or primary school students!”

“A great opportunity to enrich and inspire students who already learn in school.”

“Making learning music fun, social and creative.”.


Cello Dreaming recommends that participants have their own 1/8, ¼ or ½ size cello depending on the age of the child participating. Need to look into buying or renting a cello or not sure what size to get?

what people are saying

‘Tom comes home from his class on cloud 9 – whips his cello out and shows the family what he has learnt.  Your enthusiasm is contagious.  Thanks so much!’
Libby & Andrew Robertson, Kawana

‘Classes are amazingly awesome! Couldn’t have found a better teacher! Such a privilege to learn music from a musician who is as incredible as you.’
Student Nambour

‘Our focus is on the enjoyment of learning about classical music and discovering how to play an instrument, as opposed to the process of how to play notes ‘correctly’. As a family we feel that your style of teaching is in harmony with our own philosophy and I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful start to cello.’
