Cello Lessons

The name of the cello comes from the Italian violoncello (“little violone”). The cello is a bowed instrument with 4 strings tuned to perfect fifths.

Cellists can perform solo (like Yo Yo Ma, for example), in small groups, or in a full orchestra. The cello is famed for its resonant, beautiful sound. In classical repertoire, its similarity to the human voice often means that the cellist plays lyrical, song-like melodies.

Cello is challenging to learn. Cellists need wrist strength in both hands to play it correctly. Cello lessons will include sight reading, posture, scales, drills, grip for both hands, and more. Despite the higher difficulty level, the beauty of its sound and the music written for it makes the cello a particularly rewarding choice.
