London Youlan Qin Society Guqin Summer School 2014


News Thumb Following last year’s successful guqin summer school, the London Youlan Qin Society will hold a 5-day course this August at the Royal College of Music in South Kensington, London. The guqin (7-stringed Chinese classical zither) with its refined, other-worldly tones is the quintessential instrument of the Chinese literati, and mastery of this instrument along with chess, calligraphy, and ink-painting has historically been the mark of scholarly sophistication. It will be taught by Dr Cheng Yu, who has taught guqin at SOAS, University of London, for over 16 years, and Charles Rupert Tsua, an accomplished player with over 10 years experience.
