Adult Cello Ensemble Class

‘Great fun! I have improved my sight-reading, ensemble skills, sense of musicianship, technique and posture, made new friends and been introduced to a world of great music for cello ensemble.’
Cello ensemble member

“Do you enjoy learning and playing music in a group? You don’t need grand musical aspirations or big professional ambitions, just come along and enjoy the pure joy of rehearsing, learning and playing music with others. Designed to develop or re-kindle your love of music and the cello.”



Join this program in Brisbane, Peregian or Eudlo, Sunhine Coast.  Come along to the Adult Cello Ensemble for an intensive social class of music making, technical warm-ups, musical guidance and inspirational tips from one of Australia’s top professional cellists and teachers, Louise King. A dedicated and passionate teacher & performer, a class can unlock your creative juices, hone your technique and develop your musicianship.

Adult Cello Players come together in this series of classes to have the opportunity to play music with others, develop their technique and creative practice under guidance and enjoy sharing their love of music and the cello.  The class program is designed to bring together adult cellists in an inspiring and mentoring rehearsal experience.

The music is arranged in several ability levels from grades 4-8 and is carefully selected to create a musical and technical challenge for every player. You will play classical music, modern songs and folk music and develop group improvisation practice. Sessions will encompass a wide level of musical tasks in a mixed level class.  A meet and greet and closing reflection at the start and end of class allows members to meet new people with a similar passion for music and the cello.

Bring your cello and your sense of musical adventure and enjoy making music in a supportive environment.


Under the guidance of professional musician and Teaching Artist Louise King, the participants will rehearse in a small group.  This program is designed to provide an extension opportunity to capable and motivated adult students, music teachers, community musicians and amateurs.  Adult Cellists will benefit from experiencing different and refreshing outlook on their music making, how to get the most out of rehearsals, personal practice and professional development tips.


Cello Dreaming recommends that participants have completed minimum grade 4 AMEB  / Suzuki book 3 to be attending the class.  It is recommended that you attend regular classes to develop ensemble, teamwork and quality of musicianship.
