Adjusting the Cello Endpin
Here are a few of suggestions for setting the endpin length:
1) Set the endpin to a length equal to double the span of students hand (tip of thumb to tip of pinkie (This is an approximate starting point).
2) Ask the student to hold the cello between the knees with knees on lower bouts, then lower the endpin until it reaches the floor.
3) Cello should be about chin height when student stands.
4) C peg should be near left ear when endpin is correct length.
