Enhancing ourselves with cello playing

Self enhancement is a quest to improve the quality of our lives with personal challenges. There are many ways to do this, but playing a cello can be a great way to not only learn this wonderful skill, but also increase our mental focus. This is true for our children as well as for us. We may have taken up playing cello as a child, but if not we can also take this opportunity as an adult.

There are electric versions of stringed instruments offer the same excellent function of the acoustic style. The benefit of electric is that playing and practice can occur silently. This means we can play without disturbing others. This uses an output jack linked to a headset for silent play. We can also connect to an amplifier for performances.

Whoever takes on the challenge of learning the cello or violin will be experiencing personal enhancement that will enrich mental focus and creativity. If we have a child that will be learning this musical instrument, we might think about joining them as well.

One key to personal improvement is to challenge ourselves. Learning to play a violin is considered an endeavor that brings great additional benefit to concentration and focus. This is a great idea for children but also an excellent idea for improving ourselves. Even if we did not study violin as a child, we can still take up this training as an adult.

Making a good choice in a violin requires that we understand a little bit about how they are sized. There are eight different sizes, with the full size stated as 4/4. They decrease in size down to the smallest at 1/32. Most adults typically use the 4/4, but for the best fit, we should measure the length between our neck and the middle of our left hand palm. To do this, we should raise our hand in the position like playing a violin. The full size (4/4) will want a measurement of 23 inches, for the 3/4 it is 22 inches, and 20 inches is for 1/2. The sizes continue to reduce until the 1/32, which is 13 inches.
