Unwrap Bach’s iconic six suites for solo cello in this inspiring workshop. Perform and polish Bach in an open and engaging learning environment. Louise King will lead student cellists, lovers of Bach and the cello, through a rich and artful educational experience.  Discover the art of interpreting the suites and discuss Historical Informed Performance practice. If you have read The Cello Suites by Eric Sablin this workshop is a must. Observers and teachers are welcome to attend. Cellists (minimum AMEB grade 5) are encouraged to book and perform in the workshop. Younger students and lower levels welcome to observe and learn.

Under the expert guidance of professional cellist Louise King, the participants will perform a movement from the Bach Cello Suites in an open public workshop. Friends and family will have the chance to listen, watch and support your performance and development. This performance workshop is designed to provide a performance extension opportunity to capable and motivated cellists or amateurs. Topics discussed will be why teach and play Bach, baroque style, interpretation, bowing patterns, voicing, harmony and includes a short introduction on historical informed performance practice. Musicians young or old, teachers or students will benefit from hearing a different and refreshing outlook on playing Bach, how to get the most out of your practice and professional performance tips.

Cello Dreaming recommends that participants have completed a minimum of grade 5 AMEB  / Suzuki book 4 to be attending the workshop.  Places are allocated on first booked, first in basis and to represent a range of movements from the suites, skill levels and style of music during the workshop.  It is highly recommended that you watch and observe the whole class when you are not playing.
