Beginner'S Guide To Learning The Cello

The cello’s iconic, soothing sound is among the best reasons to learn how to play it. Are you curious about it? Before you start lessons, you should do research. You can start by checking out our Beginner’s Guide To Learning The Cello

It’s always important to choose the right cello from the get-go, especially for beginners. But with hundreds, if not thousands, of options out there, it can be very, very hard to choose one. Worry not: our team of world-renowned experts will guide you. 

It’s possible to learn the cello in two main ways: watching videos online/using a specially designed mobile app, or a conventional face-to-face lesson. We are here to help you choose which learning method fits your personal preferences best. 

If you’re trying to learn an instrument for the first time, research will help make the journey easier and more fun. This Beginner’s Guide To Learning The Cello is where you could start. It is a detailed, comprehensive guide for you and every other learner out there. But still, it’s hard to beat the feeling of jumping in playing. If you require a confidence boost for that, we are here to help you. 

You need to get the technique right the first time if you want to be good on the cello. Because if you do, the road will be shorter, and your learning way more engaging. If you don’t, a lack of technique will cause all sorts of problems. The only way to keep that from happening is by making sure to get the technique right. 

Reading and understanding sheet music is a very different skill compared to playing the cello. It’s much like reading and writing, and how they always go together, despite being two separate skills themselves. To make things easier and more enjoyable, we recommend separating sheet music reading and playing into two different categories, so you can tackle them from every angle. 

All musicians have good days and bad days in equal measure. But the great ones always have a leg up: a knack for motivating themselves to get over their bad days. You can learn how to properly motivate yourself by reading our guide to practising the cello.

Here is all you could possibly need to know about the cello, in a single FAQ page.

Beginner's Guide To Learning The Cello​

Our Founder, Robert Emery , has a great career as a musician, so we don’t need to offer you music lessons or courses to make money. Our friends can simply give real advice as pro-musicians, and that’s what makes us different.

Did you know that to teach music, absolutely no qualification is needed. Nothing. Zip. That means you could be getting advice about what to purchase, tips & techniques from someone who has never formally learnt their instrument.

You’d be surprised the number of cello teachers that don’t know a lot about the instrument. That’s one of the reasons we have created our Beginner’s Guide To Learning the Cello.

And that’s where our experts come in. And no, unlike other websites which shall remain nameless, our experts are real-life, performing, professional musician. They are the top of their game in either the UK or USA. Some are even household names.
