If you're just learning to hold a Cello, then you're probably wondering, "what is the proper way of holding a cello?" Well it is very simple and we are gonna tell you with 6 simple steps.
First: Sit in a chair with a firm base. Some cellists prefer sitting towards the front of the chair, with the left foot slightly forward.
Second: Adjust the cello endpin so the body of the cello gently rests against your chest, and the cello is balanced between your knees.
Third:Use the knees to firmly steady the cello, not to grip the instrument.
Fourth: The neck and scroll of the cello should be to the left of your head, with the lowest tuning peg approximately the same height as your ear (this may vary depending on the instrument and cellist).
Fifth: Slightly angle the cello to the right so you are able to bow on all of the strings without having to readjust the position of the cello between your knees.
Sixth: Many cellists use endpin rests to help stop their endpin from sliding. Some of the devices used by cellists to secure their endpin include: round, rubber endpin holders (the round shape has earned the nickname "donut"), endpin straps, peg board sheets and carpet remnants
