Why choose to learn Chinese folk musical instruments?
Playing a musical instrument improves memory, relieves stress, builds confidence, and makes your life fun. We are lucky to have two well-known teachers who can teach a variety of folk musical instruments, which will not only help you learn Chinese culture but also make you special. We will provide many performance opportunities throughout your musical journey.       

What are the goals of this class? 
At the beginning, students will learn erhu, yueqin, etc. as a group. As students become more skilled, they will perform together as a band. Ultimately, we want students to enjoy music, learn how to compromise, respect, and constructively communicate with their bandmates. Students will build unique bonding experiences during rehearsals and performances. They will work together toward common goals and develop good practice habits by following through with rehearsal commitments and practice routines.
