I hold my cello to low. I have for years. I have a deformed left hand, but I am starting to teach cello and I don't want the little kids to hold wrong. I tell them that they need to hold the cello the way that is comfortable, but I don't want to teach them wrong. I play along with my students and they are asking me why I hold mine differently. i am teaching 3rd and 4th graders, I love it. Two of my students have autism! They are doing excellent! I just worry about positioning. Is it okay to let them hold the cello where they feel more comfortable?

I enjoyed your videos, and I am going to refer my little cello students to your videos.
