Cello Lessons

Like the violin, the cello, or violoncello, is a four-string instrument belonging to the String Family Instruments that was created by Italian Andrea Amati in the early 16th century. It is one of the largest instruments in its family and it produces a lower, richer sound due its size and the thickness of its strings. In fact, it can be said that the cello sounds most like a human voice and has tons of potential to create a variety of tones!

The cello looks much like the violin, which is the smallest of the string instruments, but because of its large size, the cello is played in between a musician’s knees as they sit, with its body resting on the floor, which is supported by a metal peg, and its neck propped up against the musician’s left shoulder. And just like the violin, the musician’s left hand is used to press down on the strings, while the right hand plucks the strings or moves the bow. Even though the cello is a large instrument, it is a beautiful instrument that’s pleasing to the ear and even more enjoyable to play.

In beginner classes, students will learn how to properly take care of their cello, basic posture and set up, how to correctly hold the bow, basic bowing technique and tone production, and basic left hand positions and patterns. Intermediate and Advanced students will continue to learn more advanced left hand positions and patterns, as well as more advanced bowing techniques, such as vibrato and shifting. Students will also learn more complicated rhythms and learn how to play in a variety of musical keys. Students will have the opportunity to take Royal Conservatory Music exams or play in ensembles.
