This is a one- hour  flexible course for 10 weeks, suitable for anyone who has an interest in Chinese music or culture.   

Whether you are a complete beginner, or have previous experience of playing a stringed instrument, our professional music instructor will accomodate your needs and give you a memorable introduction to this beautiful instrument.

The courses are suitable for beginners and more advanced practitioners alike.

What is Guzheng?

Guzheng is a stringed instrument plucked with plectra attached to four fingers of one or both hands by tape. Traditional playing styles use the right hand to pluck notes and the left hand to change the pitch and produce vibrato by pressing the strings. Modern styles or advanced players use both hands to strike notes.

Equipment

You will need bring your own finger pick (plectra) and tape for the class.

You can purchase plectras on this website.
