When should my child start learning cello and at what age should they start cello lessons??
A lot of schools these days have an orchestral strings immersion program in grades 2 or 3 where all the students are involved and able to try orchestral string instruments. Most begin with violin and if the child shows interest allows them to branch out to different instruments. This is also the age that most schools allow students to start taking lessons and joining school ensembles. This is a great opportunity for your child to try out different instruments and find the right one for them. If your child is showing enthusiasm for wanting to learn an instrument, they can start at any age. Even from 3 - 6 months old there are a variety of entry level music classes that will introduce them to the basics of music and getting them involved in creating music. Your child can also start learning cello at any age, our cello sizes go down to 1/16 size! There are a variety of teaching methods designed for teaching children from a very young age such as the extremely well-known Suzuki method which was how some famous players learnt, such as Ray Chen who started the Suzuki method at age 4.
What do I need to buy with my beginner cello?
Our cello outfits come with a bag and a bow included and to be able to play you will also need to purchase rosin. Rosin is necessary to be able to play your cello. A rockstop/slipstop is also usually necessary to stop the endpin of the cello sliding on the floor, but this would depend on whether the child will be learning on hardwood flooring, tiles, carpet etc. A lot of players will always use a stopper as this will also prevent the endpin (which is a sharp metal spike) from damaging flooring. We also recommend a music stand, a cleaning cloth, and a tuner. These items will make learning and maintaining the cello a lot easier.
What are the benefits of learning the cello?
There are a vast number of benefits to learning the cello and music as a whole. There have been noted mental, emotional and physical benefits to learning to cello. From improved fine motor skills, learning discipline and improving memory to improved social skills from being involved in ensembles just to name a few.
How is the cello different from the violin or viola?
The cello is a much larger instrument than the violin or viola. Where the violin or viola rests on the shoulder of the player and can be played sitting or standing, the cello is played sitting down with the cello between the legs, leaning back on the players' shoulder. The cello uses the same strings as a viola; C, G, D, and A, but sounds at an octave lower than the viola. A cello player also uses a slightly different bow grip than a violin or viola player. Cello players also read a variety of different clefs and may have to jump between different clefs in a given piece. At higher levels, a cello player will generally need to know Treble, Tenor and Bass clefs.
