Chinese traditional music culture is a kind of artistic wisdom accumulated by human beings for thousands of years. The wonderful tone combines the thoughts and emotions of people of different regions and races, and integrates various different and changeable musical forms. It takes root in the soil of traditional culture and can be inherited and developed. Cello is a musical instrument that entered China from the West, but after it was introduced into China, it was further developed and integrated with Chinese traditional music culture. In cello class, teachers can adopt strategies such as highlighting the playing skills of the instrument, flexibly displaying the sound of the instrument, customizing famous music according to classic works, analyzing the characteristics of cello solo and ensemble, and realizing the combination of cello and Chinese musical instruments, so as to enrich the educational resources of Chinese traditional music and better integrate them into the traditional music culture, so as to improve students' musical ability.
