The cello
The violoncello, also called cello for short, is actually a bass violin in a standing position.
The instrument is so large that it can no longer be held under the chin: it is placed between the knees, with an extendable tail pin resting on the floor.
The cello is played with a bow that is shorter than that of the violin. The sound is an octave (8 notes) lower than the viola.
The cello plays an important role in the symphony orchestra. Sometimes the bass part is played (together with the double basses), other times the melody.

The lessons
Experience shows that both young and old enjoy the lessons, but especially the opportunity to make music with others. The cello is a social instrument. However, one can also play solo. The lessons follow a thorough curriculum, in which General Music Education, music theory and ensemble playing are also worked on. Musical enjoyment is paramount. The lessons can be obtained in small groups or individually in consultation with the teacher. For example; three students in one hour. Advantages of group lessons are: more lesson time, less fear of failure, many opportunities to play together and more fun. The groups are composed of students of the same level. Lessons are given for both beginners and advanced levels.

With the cello you can also play in one of the string ensembles that we have at Muziekschool Diemen. The String Ensemble and the Junior String Ensemble for the very youngest.
