Chording (and Chopping!) on Cello

Renata Bratt

Chording (and Chopping!) on CelloLearn and perform chords on the cello. Playing chords improves three things: our understanding of music theory ‐ how chords work together with melody, learning the positions on every string, and intonation. In addition, playing chords teaches us how to accompany others. Besides adding rhythmic flair, chopping gives our bow hands an essential work‐out; it teaches our fingers to move independently, lends agility to string crossing, cross‐trains spiccato, sautille and setting the bow and boosts wrist flexibility.
