I began learning the Guzheng at the age of five. At the age of ten, I passed the Guzheng tenth level examination with excellent results. At the age of fifteen, I held a solo Guzheng concert for the first time. From 2007, I started to study under Wangwei, a famous Guzheng player as well as a professor in Shanghai Conservatory of Music. Having won many highest rewards in various Guzheng competitions both municipal and provincial, including one gold medal from a national competition called ‘Oriental Youth Star Art Competition’, I consider myself to have accomplished a relative high level of the Guzheng performance with a good command of playing techniques and rich stage experience.
