I want to play!

Are you sure?!

Requirements for success:

Finding a teacher

Ask around about teachers in your local area. You can contact the American String Teachers Association, the Suzuki Association or your school director for names and recommendations. The ICS has a searchable membership directory and list of cello teachers.

Renting or buying an instrument

Have your teacher or instrument dealer determine the size of cello that you will need. It is usually a wise idea to rent until one learns to take care of the instrument and ready to make an investment in a wood instrument (plywood is okay at first)! Check your local phonebook for violin shops/ luthiers for instrument rentals and supplies.
