My first post here and greetings to you all! Smile

I've just read about the exciting first Guzheng Beijing International Festival being held recently in China. Can someone help me to find some links to watch this amazing event?

No, I haven't seen any videos from that event. Well, only a short video of a few seconds.

Jarrelle,

Your town is very blessed to have you there! You're making a boring place very exciting with your Guzheng music! Sounds like you're a very priced pupil to your Guzheng teacher. I would have a hard time letting you go too!

I certainly am impressed with your progress and am looking forward to hearing more of your playing. I have no doubt if you do believe in past lives that you must have been a Guzheng Master before! Very Happy

Keep the good work Jarrelle and I wish you'll be invited to perform at the second Beijing Guzheng International Festival. Smile

Jarrelle,

I'm been thinking of your situation. As a non Chinese, you have certainly proven your passion, dedication and love for Chinese Guzheng music. Have you ever visited the Chinese Conservatory of Music website? Perhaps you can contact them and enquire about the possibility of obtaining a scholarship or some type of student/work exchange program that they might offer. It also will be helpful if your Guzheng teacher can write you a letter of recommendation.

All the best Jarrelle and don't forget to send them link to your Youtube clips and your desire to participate in next year's Beijing International Guzheng festival. I trust you will be very well received. Smile Just don't get lazy!!! Evil or Very Mad ACT NOW!!!

Hope is the thing with feathers,
that perches in the soul, and
sings the tune without words,
and never stops at all - Emily Dickinson
