About This Lesson

The guqin (goo chin, also referred to as the qin) is the most revered of Chinese instruments and China's oldest stringed instrument, with a history of some 3000 years. It became part of a tradition cultivated by the Chinese scholars and literati, and an instrument associated with philosophers, sages, and emperors. The guqin was also a very important subject in Confucius' education system. Renowned guqin performer and scholar Wang Fei guides us on a special musical journey, introducing Chinese culture and bringing to life the sound of the sages.
