The Guzheng is a plucked string instrument originating from ancient China. It belongs to the chordophone family and produces beautiful sounds by plucking its strings. With its rich cultural heritage and unique musical style, the Guzheng is a popular choice for those interested in exploring traditional Chinese music.
Learning the Guzheng can be challenging for young children due to its long neck and the finger strength required to press the strings. However, as children grow older, they can begin their Guzheng journey. This instrument offers an elegant appearance and distinctive tonal qualities, allowing children to develop their musical perception and coordination while experiencing the enchantment of traditional Chinese music. Our tailored Guzheng lessons cater to different age groups, providing engaging and interactive instruction that inspires a love for Guzheng music. With the guidance of our experienced teachers, students will learn essential playing techniques, explore repertoire, and express themselves musically, fostering a joyful learning environment and a deep appreciation for the beauty of the Guzheng.
Our vision is to meet the needs and nurture the growth of children by building a strong musical foundation. In addition to regular lessons, we focus on developing essential skills such as rhythm, sight-reading, and aural exercises. Our experienced teachers customize the lessons to each student, aligning with their interests and creating a joyful and fun learning environment. Our goal is to cultivate young maestros of music who are passionate and skilled in their musical journey.
Our Guzheng lessons go beyond the physical aspect of playing the instrument. In addition to teaching essential techniques, our experienced teachers provide students with comprehensive knowledge of music, including music history, genres, styles, and theory, fostering a broader understanding of music. To enhance their musical growth, we organize 2-3 peer performance practices per year, allowing students to develop stage manners, confidence, self-recognition, and overcome stage fright. Through this approach, we aim to empower our Guzheng students to become well-rounded musicians who excel both technically and creatively.
