Sound of China Guzheng Music 唐韻古箏音樂推廣中心
Sound of China Guzheng Music Promotion Center is founded by Carol Chang (aka yukina) in 2005. With a group of guzheng loving friends, Carol also founded Sound of China Guzheng Ensemble. Our goal is to promote the music of guzheng also known as Chinese zither or gu zheng, and as well as the instrument itself. We work closely with instrument makers and musicians to bring most updated music and instruments. Every year, Carol travels to China numerous times to visit factories and music shows, and bring back the latest selection including the awarding winning instruments. Carol has extensive knowledge on the making of guzheng. She is the author of over 100 articles on the guzheng selection and fine tuning that are published on major Chinese musical instrument magazines and forums. Her essays are also collected on the 6th Chinese Guzheng Arts Conference in 2008 and the 7th Chinese Guzheng Arts Conference in 2013.
Currently, we have a showroom in Hacienda Heights, California, mainly serving the guzheng players in the greater Los Angeles and Orange County area. We offer large supplies of guzheng instruments, learning tools,music CDs, videos and accessories. We also provide group or private guzheng lessons serving Los Angeles and Orange County in our Hacienda Heights center. If you are not nearby, we can also refer you a professional guzheng teacher in your area.
We understand that it is hard to acquire information about guzheng music outside of the Chinese communities. Therefore, to best serve all musicians who are interested in guzheng, this website is created to be an English resource center about the guzheng instrument.
In this website, you can find plenty of articles on guzheng, information of a guzheng musician in your area, news in this music industry, useful learning tools, and teachers close to your place. Nevertheless, we offer quality and affordable instruments, textbooks, music CD/VCD/DVDs. The price of our products are based on their cost, shipping, custom clearing and minimal mark-up enough to cover our maintenance cost. There is no excess mark-up. Our goal is to promote the guzheng instrument and music. To us guzheng lovers, the worst thing is to see people blocked away by high price or low quality awful-sounded instruments and music.
