Culture Class – traditional instrument Guqin

Last Tuesday, Our au pairs learned how to play Guqin古琴 at Lanyou Studio. Guqin is a plucked seven-string Chinese musical instrument of the zither family. It is originated from ancient times, and has been favoured by scholars as an instrument of great subtlety and refinement from past to now. There is an old saying in China that “a gentle man does not part with his qin(琴) or se(瑟) without good reason,” as well as being associated with the ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius. It is usually regarded as “the father of Chinese music” or “the instrument of the sages”.
