Obtaining Instruments

Cello Instrument Information

The Suzuki Parent should rent a FULL SIZE cello from Johnson Strings to be delivered by the first day of the semester, for 6 months.

Johnson Strings makes monthly trips to BKCM. Their delivery (service) trips are listed here.  Instruments can be picked up in the afternoon of the day of the delivery. The phone number for Johnson Strings is (800) 359-9351.

DO NOT order an instrument for your child. Your teacher will size your child before the children start their lessons’ in November. Also order a Xeros Anchor for Cello – otherwise known as an Endpin Rest – which holds the endpin in place on the floor.

Cello students are required to bring their own stools to classes. This ensures that students have the correct height stool at home to practice as well as during classes. See separate info sheet for stool options.
