Try it – you might like it!
Are you looking for high-energy group classes introducing little people to the wonders of classical music? Experience a low cost, fun-filled monthly program that plants musical learning seeds in your child that will help them grow into active little cello learners. Music can develop your child’s confidence, creativity and independence.
Drawing on 25 years experience as a music educator and as a mother, Louise King has developed the new Youth Beginner Cello Class program to appeal to and engage busy active little 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 Beginner Class is ideal for kids at pre-school, kindy or lower primary school, home-schooled families or kids who think learning with friends is fun. Come and make music in a jam-packed activity class!
what’s 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 story or theme such as Day At The Beach or Dinosaur Dig. 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!
where is it?
Cello Dreaming Teaching Studio with a fully equipped parent waiting room is situated in a quiet residential street in the quaint little village of Eudlo, Hinterland Sunshine Coast, 20 minutes car trip from Mooloolaba, Maroochydore, Kawana or Nambour. Enjoy a gorgeous drive or train trip through the countryside with your children and take a walk in the neighbouring park or local skate park whilst your budding little cellist takes the class program. Children books, (quiet) games and toys are provided for any siblings who come along. The main studio is spacious and air-conditioned and has a piano for piano accompaniment.
For the annual student’s class concert, Cello Dreaming hires the local community hall, the same hall where the dreaming BIG concert series presents sell-out classical music concerts.
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 learn in school.”
“Making learning music fun, social and creative.”.

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.’
‘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.’
