Instrument Position for Cello and Bass

Holding the cello and the bass can be difficult for younger students because of the size of these instruments. Students should have an opportunity to get familiar with the feel of the instrument. One way to do this is to have students carry instruments around room, being careful not to bang them. Let the students practice putting down and picking up their instruments without making any noise.
