The Cello is an instrument whose sound is produced through the friction of the bow on the strings or through the pizzicato. It has a lower pitch than the violin and the viola, but higher than the double bass, all instruments from the same family. Because of its dimensions, one plays the cello seated (as the viola da gamba) and, like the other instruments from the same family, you will learn to adapt the bow pressure on each string, producing the very characterizing velvet sound of the cello:
The cello sheet music is written in the bass clef, although there are cases when you may find sheets in the C clef.
You can begin to learn the cello with a cello from the Cascais Music School. Check for more information at our Shop.
