Guzheng Lessons

Learn to play guzheng from the Northwest’s premier instructor. With over 14+ years experience teaching guzheng and twenty years experience playing, Shirley has studied with the top guzheng instructors in Beijing, China. Lessons are offered in both English and Mandarin to adults and children.

We teach the systematic basic skills of music theory and many kinds of playing methods. For young students, we use the individualized and entertaining method; for the adult students, we focus on theory and enhancing their performance skills. GuZheng lessons are available in the greater Seattle area and the Eastside. Lessons are scheduled based on student and teacher availability and may be started any time during the year.
