The cello is a string instrument with a beautiful, dark, and soft sound. You can play many kinds of music on the cello by yourself, with another musician, in ensembles, and in orchestras.

Cellos come in varying sizes, and you can start playing the cello even at a young age. There is no age limit to starting to play the cello: it’s your enthusiasm that counts.

The teacher will help you choose the instrument. The music institute has small cellos to rent.

Playing the cello is cool!
