Louise Campbell, Teaching Artist

Louise Camp­bell is a Mon­tre­al-based musi­cian whose pro­fes­sion­al hats range from clar­inet­tist to con­duc­tor, par­tic­i­pa­to­ry arts facil­i­ta­tor to cul­tur­al medi­a­tor. As a com­pos­er-per­former and impro­vis­er, Louise seeks to inter­ro­gate and renew the ways in which we make music by cre­at­ing new works with every­one, regard­less of age, abil­i­ty, lev­el of pri­or expe­ri­ence, or train­ing. Her spe­cial­iza­tions include impro­vi­sa­tion and music cre­ation with untrained (aka ‘ama­teur’) musi­cians, impro­vised con­duct­ing, cross-dis­ci­pli­nary cre­ation, col­lab­o­ra­tive process­es, and pub­lic engage­ment. In addi­tion to being Project Leader for the Cana­di­an New Music Net­work’s Par­tic­i­pa­to­ry Cre­ative Music Hub, Louise works exten­sive­ly as a Teach­ing Artist with ELAN ArtistsIn­spire, Cul­ture in Schools and Cul­ture pour tous, and as a cul­tur­al medi­a­tor with arts orga­ni­za­tions such as Inno­va­tions en con­cert, Brady­works, Orchestre Sym­phonique de Mon­tréal, and the Opéra de Montréal.
