Teachers in the UK
On the right hand side of this page, you will find the steadily growing directory of accredited Stringbabies (Cellobabies, Violababies or Violinbabies) teachers in the UK. Most are also happy to work with older children and adults at higher levels.
We list the name of each teacher and the town/county that the they work in – each name is linked to a full page with that teacher’s biography, picture etc.
We also show their primary instrument(s), but do feel free to ask them if they teach one of the others – many are multi-talented!
What our teachers say
Stringbabies is a unique way of introducing string playing to young children. It teaches notation in a fun way, develops the child’s listening skills and allows creative expression through composing. A wonderful way to start learning an instrument.
I am really looking forward to getting started with the Stringbabies materials. It is a method that covers everything a beginner student needs whilst also making learning fun and engaging.
I think the method of Stringbabies is such a fascinating one. It starts off by taking something that very young children are comfortable with (their teddy bears!) and incorporates them into learning violin, in a fun, interactive way. Music note reading is introduced slowly but surely in a fun, accessible way with the dedicated student and teacher books.
Cello Babies is a unique and ideal combination of the best of music education, with the best of what we know about how children learn, and what feeds them, musically, and intellectually.
