Do you like the homepage to start with music or without? Will it bother people to have music on? Or will it present a feel of guzheng with music in the beginning?

IMO, music can be interesting initially, but may eventually have an adverse effect if someone comes back to this website often. That means listening to the same thing everytime. If the music approach is to be taken, than the song needs to be carefully selected to avoid negative association. If it were me, I would choose a not so well-know song because people familar with the song can get critical if you know what I mean. To me, some folk songs or minimal compositions, soothing and monotone may be complementary to the web browsing experience.

I don't like pages which start music automatically. It costs bandwith, takes time for loading and if you visit the page frequently, it gets boring. The visitor should at least have the choice.

I have disabled music in my browsers preferences for security reasons. Not everything that claims to be an audio file acutally is an audio file, so it's better to keep automatic playing turned off.

i agree. a playlist would be nice. i'm not too crazy about the automatic music playing. it can kinda freak u out if ur surfing late at night and visit the site. hahah!!! how about having some of our forum members submit some stuff?

there should be like a little side box that lets you get a taste of the different songs and styles of the guzheng... it makes the site feel more friendly

how about showcasing certain musicans from your cd finds or take soundclips submitted by our fellow artists?

your site could show case a new talent every week or whenever you have time to change the music on your page. for example, this week we have new song from so so's album.....or song samples from your online cd sales collection to give the audience a taste.

That sounds like a good idea. I'll try my best to update it though.
Maybe we should start a song list of what you want to listen, then I'll try to post it one at a time.
