The cello is heard in symphony orchestras in large concert halls, but also in video games and film music. The tone of the cello is warm and full-bodied and at the same time sounding, making it a suitable instrument even for solo play.

Do you want to start with a string instrument, but don't know which one? Then maybe the cello is for you.

We adapt the teaching according to you or your child and make sure that you get the help you need to develop and discover everything the music has to offer. You learn to listen, read notes and play from day one.

Target audience

Children and adults. No prior knowledge is required.



  • Note reading: from day one you learn to read and play at the same time. We believe that note reading is necessary in order to develop their skills in the instrument.
  • Rhythm: we clap different rhythms and go through all the sheet music values.
  • Hearing and singing: being able to sing is one of the most important factors in the development of the hearing. We sing different tones that we play and practice recognizing them.
  • Sound: we go through the different shades and sounds of the cello. The cello should be like an extension of the voice.
  • Technology: good technology is a prerequisite for having a varied repertoire. We learn basic string technology and left-handed technology.
  • Ergonomics: sitting right while playing is incredibly important to avoid occupational injuries. We go through various exercises for shoulders and seat legs that maintain a good posture.
