About Louise

Louise Chappell is a multi-talented musician specialising in clarinet, saxophone, flute and piano. She is a well-established woodwind doubler, making a name for herself in both the classical and musical theatre worlds and is a two-time winner of the Wilfred Hambleton Clarinet competition (2018 & 2019). Louise is currently finishing her studies in clarinet at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance under the guidance of four world class teachers.

During the last season, Louise has performed with many London based orchestras in some wonderful venues; the Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Cadogan Hall to name a few. These orchestras include the Women of the World Orchestra, London City Philharmonic, London Beethoven Orchestra, the Goodensemble, Cinematic Syncopations Orchestra and the London Iuvenis Orchestra. As well as orchestral playing, Louise has a busy portfolio career performing and teaching in London and East Anglia.

Since 2012, Louise has had a love for teaching and has made a busy career out of that passion. She travels to Witham, Essex, each weekend to teach where there are a lack of good quality instrumental teachers as she believes that everyone should be able to have the chances in life that she was so lucky to get.  Additionally, she serves as the Teacher of Woodwind at James Wolfe Primary School with Centre for the Deaf.
