CELLO SIZING

here are a few common methods used to determine the correct cello size for a student and It’s very important to pick the right cello size so that practicing and learning the instrument will be enjoyable. The larger the cello means the larger the distance between fingered notes on the strings. Matching specific height/span measurements is the more precise and best place to start.

The age/size recommendations are based on the average heights and arm spans for each age group.

4-6 years old 1/8 size 

5-7 years old 1/4 size

7-11 years old 1/2 size

11-15 years old 3/4 size

15 year and older 4/4 size
