No matter what you learn, it starts from scratch. It is best to find a professional teacher at the beginning. As the old saying goes, a good start is half the success. The guidance of the correct method can achieve twice the result with half the effort. Don't grope around on your own, waste your energy and make more detours. The teacher will teach the basic knowledge of music and how to read music while teaching the fingering and skills of the guzheng. Most of our students start from scratch.
There is no absolute age limit for learning Guzheng. To formally learn Guzheng, it is appropriate to be over the age of five, up to the age of seventies or eighties. Our oldest student is already ninety years old, so Guzheng is a musical instrument suitable for all ages.
In addition to mastering a skill and an artistic specialty, children learning Guzheng can also play a role in enhancing intelligence, cultivating perseverance, focusing attention, and developing thinking. Adults learning Guzheng can cultivate sentiment, increase self-cultivation, relieve stress, etc. From a medical point of view, the harmonious and pleasant melody of the beautiful and pleasant zheng music can regulate the excitation, inhibition and improve the metabolism and development of brain tissue. It can be used in rehabilitation medicine to cure diseases and prolong life.
In order to become a Guzheng performer in the future, in addition to the hard work that goes beyond ordinary people, innate musical understanding and acquired opportunities are equally important. Therefore, when parents send their children to learn guzheng, they must have a rational understanding, so that children can master a skill, have a hobby, and enhance artistic accomplishment, which is also the embodiment of quality education.

As time goes by, there are more and more varieties of Guzheng, and their price ranges from a few hundred to thousands of dollars, dazzling and confusing many buyers. As a buyer, you need to understand, the foremost function of a musical instrument is to play as an auditory art; and the visual presence comes second as an visual art. Therefore, the sound quality should be your first consideration when selecting a Guzheng instrument.
Many may think they should choose a cheaper/beginner Guzheng to start with. However, if you are a serious Guzheng learner, this often is not the best option. A high-quality instrument that can bring you satisfaction and enjoyment beyond monetary value. You got what you pay for. The price of the instrument depends on its quality. Our principle is to buy the best instruments you can afford and buy instruments that you will enjoy playing every day. The look and design of an instrument is important, but not as important as its sound.

Group class is where a few students of the same level learn together. The main advantages are: lower tuition cost than 1 on 1 class; students can compare with each other & learn from each other, which increase their interest in learning. The disadvantage is that the instructor has limited time allocated to each student, and the progress cannot be determined by the individual level.

Students make faster progress. The only disadvantage is that the tuition fee is correspondingly higher than that of group classes.
