You are here: Home > Linda Recommends > Best for Beginners
I pick my Best for Beginners instruments first due to their ease of play. They also must provide a level of quality to encourage practicing and advancement, and not hold a beginner back in anyway. These cellos will provide a good introduction to the instrument and can always be traded in when you are ready for a more advanced instrument. If you are also on a budget, look for cellos marked as both Best for Beginner and For The Budget-Minded and you can't go wrong. Like all of my cellos, they are setup in my shop by selecting strings and other accessories to bring out the best in each cello.
