Hi,

I may be able to help you so I have a few questions:

1. Do you have any previous music/instrument experience?
2. Do you plan on playing for pleasure or professionally?

Thanks.

3. Are you Korean? If not, do you plan to be?

**I've only seen Korean people carrying their cellos around. Any cello player that is worth anything has been white, except for Yoyo Ma. He's like a Unicorn Cello Player. Then again with a name like Yoyo, how the fuck do you not own everything you do.

I played piano (haven't played for 7 years) but still sight read for fun here and there.

I want to learn for pleasure. I've always loved the sound.

Thanks

I've heard cello is one of the most difficult instruments to learn, and they are also expensive habits.

I know someone who has been playing regularly for ~5 years and he still feels he has a long way to go.

So time, money and commitment are three things I hope you possess.

This may not be the best resource, but you can start here:

Find a Teacher Here! - Vancouver Academy of MusicVancouver Academy of Music -

If not, you can look at contacting the music faculties of Vancouver Community College, Capilano University, or UBC's School of Music for teachers.

I would suggest you get in touch with a teacher first before you buy one because there may be alternative options, such as renting one. For all you know, you may not even like it and cellos are not cheap because there are better ways of becoming a Korean. While I do not play the cello or any string instrument, seeing fellow musicians carry around their cello is just a fucking eye sore and a huge waste of time.

Since you already play piano, I hope you can master Saint-SaŽns' Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso then apply it onto your cello/violin or what have you.

Was either plastic surgery or the cello. I like my face as is.

Not quite the same, but I picked up the double bass a couple of years ago. Even playing the electric bass for a long time, there was a huge learning curve. Being a fretless instrument, there is a lot of muscle memory you have to develop which only comes via practice. I haven't a clue on the cello market, but I imagine a decent one will run you more than a 1k for a decent one. You might be better off renting until you are sure you want to fully commit to it.
