Up to the Ming Dynasty, zither was widely popular in the southwest of Shandong, and the performance skills also developed greatly. Since the early Qing Dynasty, Zheng music had become a part of people's life in Heze and other places. There was a saying among the people that "most of the big households in the city had songs, and every village outside the city had zheng". The representative songs include Autumn Moon in Han Palace, High Mountains and Flowing Water, etc., and the small board Zheng song, which is adapted from local rap and folk tunes in modern times, is concise in structure, full of changes in rhythm, and beautiful and soft in melody.
