Getting Started with the Cello

The cello is tuned in fifths, C-G-D-A. Once you have properly applied the rosin to the bow, a sound of some sort will come rather quickly. However, as with any instrument, it will take time and practice to produce music. Both hands will work together yet in completely different forms. The right hand and arm will work to produce the tone, while the left hand will control the pitch and the ability to play in tune.

It is best to contact your school music director or local music store representative with any questions about handling or proper use of maintenance accessories.
