Guzheng is the treasure of the Chinese nation. Guzheng is one of the unique and important national instruments in China. It has beautiful timbre, wide range, rich playing skills and strong expressive force. Therefore, it is deeply loved by the masses. I hope more and more people can be infected by the music of Guzheng, contact Guzheng, learn Guzheng, and start a musical journey with Guzheng!

The art of guzheng has a long history and can be carried forward today, which is directly related to its unique artistic charm. The beauty of the zither lies in its timbre. The tenor is clear and sweet, the tenor is round and full, and the bass is thick and simple. The beauty of the zither lies in its shape, which is simple and elegant, beautiful and generous, and has smooth line beauty. The zither head box cover and tail are all kinds of craft decoration, lying horizontally on the frame with high head and low tail, wide head and narrow tail. In addition, a row of wild geese columns are arranged on the surface of the zither like a group of wild geese flying to the north, and the strings like women's green silk are strung up. The performer sits on the right, and a kind of implicit and graceful beauty emerges leisurely.
