The cello has four strings, pitched C-G-D-A upward from two octaves below middle C. The left hand holds the cello while the player is seated with the cello resting against their chest and is balanced between the knees. Your right hand holds the bow. You will need to rosin the hair on the bow for the bow to play properly. Refer to our cello page to determine the correct size cello for your student.
