The Youth Intermediate Cello Class Program, designed and directed by Louise King, provides a monthly ensemble for intense group rehearsal and development for young aspiring musicians who wish to be mentored in classical contemporary music performance practice including exploring classical, improvisation, jazz and world music.

Designed with the intermediate youth student in mind (ages 9-14), this group class is fun, dives into new topics and styles of music, develops existing skills and is delivered in a clear and engaging way.

Each class contains technical exercises to build coordination, confidence, musicianship, ear training and music theory. One instructive piece is worked on as a group with teacher demonstrations and at the end of class, this piece will be played by the group with teacher accompaniment. Nobody plays on their own unless they want to! Class activities are done all together in a supportive and encouraging environment. The emphasis is on building musicianship and performance skills integrated with learning to play the cello.



Under the expert guidance of professional musician Louise King, the participants will learn in a small group. This series of classes is designed to provide adult students to try playing the cello step by step.  It is an opportunity to try something new in a supportive group environment and meet people with similar interests.


Cello Dreaming recommends that participants have their own or rented cello to be attending the class.  It is highly recommended that you attend all classes to enjoy the sequenced development and to develop teamwork and confidence.

what people are saying

‘You are a rare find, both an excellent performer and inspiring teacher.  Your classes are SO rewarding, and carefully prepared. You instinctively understand and work with all the varying personalities, abilities and goals of your students.  Your practical suggestions and confidence convince us that we can all express the music within, with some remarkable results.’
Margaret Moss

‘Louise has helped me reawaken my connection with music.  Her intuitive style of teaching helped me find the courage to pick up my cello again.  She not only loosened my rusty fingers but also gave me the confidence to be able to play in front of people.  Louise is very understanding to the complexities of learning an instrument as an adult and she has great ways and ideas to keep students on track and self-motivated.’
Lia Titman

‘Louise’s contagious, joyous passion for music and her cello is completely inspiring.  Her classes are just about the best thing I have ever done in my life. The opportunity to play with peers and realise that I’m not alone in my dreams to master the cello has given me great confidence.’
