Learning with the Suzuki method requests to become a member of either the BSI (British Suzuki Institute) or the LSG (London Suzuki Group). This membership is obligatory and has to be in place before the first lesson (after the observation period). It offers the child a wide range of holiday classes, workshops, and events. (To sign up go to or call 020 3176 4170.) You can pay by direct debit or PayPal.



The process of the first year learning the cello:


  • o years of age. There isn't always space available straight away and you lose valuable time due to the observation period and your own lessons which are necessary.


    Please note: we can not accept children over the age of four as beginners.


    The process of the first year learning the cello:


  • Observation of one term, depending on the child: group lessons, then one-to-one lessons
  • At least first 2 lessons with a homemade cello: child and parent make a cello and bow out of cardboard and strings. A stick can be attached at the bottom as the spike. The child needs to understand that it has to "earn" learning the instrument.
  • Books to be read by the parent before the first lesson: 'Nurtured by Love', 'Ability Development from Age Zero'
  • Film: Nurtured by Love 
  • The parent needs to think about their own work schedule: how to fit in daily practice with child plus 2 lessons per week (one-to-one and group lesson)
  • It has to be the same parent who attends the one-to-one lesson
  • 4 concerts per year (participation expected)
  • After the first term of lessons: regrouping with the parent to discuss routine of practice (it takes about one term for parent and child to settle into the new routine)
  • After 6 months: practice routine should be settled
  • After 6 months: reassessment[i] of development. The reassessment refers mainly to the parent and his or her role as the home teacher.  


[i] Reassessment means a decision to be taken by the teacher on the continuation of lessons based on progress to date, reflecting the parent's role.

We are the new cello studio for very young children and their parents. Children can start to have cello lessons at any time from the age of three. Their parents will be very much involved and the process will be a special quality and bonding time between parent and child. 

Our cello teachers offer individual cello lessons, which, depending on the teaching program, will be supplemented with group lessons or cello classes. We recommend cello classes for children as it is not only very sociable and fun but the children also can learn a lot by watching other children playing the cello. Making music together motivates and furthers ensemble playing. We integrate lots of games in our curriculum and are always aware of the individual needs of our little cello students.
