Cello Size Chart
When choosing a cello, it is important to consider your height and hand size. If you are unsure about the best size instrument, an experienced cello teacher can help you make the most appropriate choice. The table below provides a range of cello sizes for easy reference.
Seat the student on a chair with their legs bent to a 90 degrees in an upright position. Be sure to check the student isn't leaning back or forward on the chair. Using a tape measure note the distance between the left knee and the left ear.
