Cello, as one of the Western musical instruments, has been widely loved for its beautiful timbre and unique shape since it entered China for more than 300 years. But in recent years, people pay more and more attention to the traditional music culture. How to combine the cello with the traditional Chinese music culture has become the main work direction of educators at this stage. It aims to help students understand the characteristics of Western musical instruments, expand their horizons and accurately grasp the styles of different ethnic works. In view of this, this paper mainly analyzes the contents of the integration of Cello and Chinese traditional music culture in different periods. At last, it highlights the cultural inclusiveness of our country and lays a good foundation for the realization of students' all-round development of education and teaching goals.
