Guzheng

Guzheng is a prominent stringed Chinese musical instrument that has been around for more than 2,500 years. It delivers intrinsically beautiful and elegant sounds. This course covers basic fingering skils and hand coordination as well as the functions of the different parts of a guzheng. Students are coached and guided till they reach performance standard. Learning to play a guzheng helps to cultivate a refined mind and character.

We invite you to join the class and experience the moving sounds of guzheng, while learning to play Chinese classical music on the instrument.
