Violin or Cello Which one is more suitable for you?
The most often praised advantage of the violin is its practicality. The violin (on average) is much cheaper than the Acoustic Cello. At the same time it is small and portable. In addition, many people appreciate the range and tone of the violin because it is closer to the human voice.
The violin has been popular for about 400 years, and even for experienced violinists, there are still countless classic repertoires that can be challenged. So in this sense, the number of violinists is often the largest in an orchestra.
Compared with other string music, the violin is also more competitive, because many people play it. It doesn't seem to be difficult to enter the second violin department, but it is very difficult to enter the upper circle.
What preparations need to learn cello?
Knowledge preparation, equipment preparation, and psychological preparation.
1. Knowledge preparation: Before starting to learn the cello, you should have a certain musical foundation, which will make the cello enlightenment process more effective. The so-called music foundation includes basic music knowledge (such as basic listening and expressing ability of pitch and rhythm, understanding of staff, etc.) and accumulation of music appreciation. It should be noted that the teaching of most music basic knowledge courses mainly revolves around the treble clef, while the bass clef is mostly used in the elementary stage of cello performance. Teachers of basic music courses should be reminded to strengthen their understanding of identifying bass staves.
2. Equipment preparation: a cello (and a matching bow) of a suitable size should be selected according to the height and strength. Common cellos on the market have different specifications such as 1/8, 1/4, 2/4, 3/4, and 7/8, which can basically meet all body needs. When choosing a piano model, please be sure to uphold the attitude of "not going for it", and choose the model that is most suitable for the current figure, instead of the idea of "buy a little bigger and you can continue to use it in a few years"-the concert will go Distortion of posture and movement, and the left hand is not big enough, it will also lead to poor pitch and impair hearing ability. The necessary accessories for the instrument are: rosin (used to apply the bow hair and increase the "string grip" of the bow hair), floor mats (used to prevent insufficient friction of the feet on the smooth ground), piano bag ,Music stand.
3. Psychological preparation: write the psychological preparation at the end, precisely because it is the most important level.
Learning a musical instrument is a protracted battle. Are you ready to spend an hour with you in piano practice after a hard day's work? Are you ready to arrange your school's homework and set aside one hour for the cello every day?
Is there enough concentration to be consistent?
In the enlightenment stage of stringed instruments, there will definitely not be a pleasant auditory experience-this stage will last one to three years. Are you prepared to endure it? Will your neighbors complain?
The most difficult thing to predict and deal with is the change of mentality on the way to learn piano. When encountering difficulties and setbacks, thoughts such as "I don't like the cello so much" and "why bother to suffer such a serious crime" will naturally arise. Mind nature is mostly soft and changeable, "Is it irresponsible? At this time, can I grit my teeth and find a way to persevere? This is the most difficult thing.
