2 Do not over tighten the bow. The stick should always bend slightly towards the horse hair and never away from it.

Always loosen the bow before putting it away.

4 Hold the cello by the neck. Avoid touching the pegs as this can make it go out of tune.
5 Keep your cello and case out of the sun and away from heaters, otherwise the varnish will blister, the wood will become damaged and the instrument will fall apart as it is only held together with glue.
6 When not in use store your instrument in a safe place where there is no possibility of sun getting on it during any part of the day and out of reach of younger family members. Never leave it in a car.
