Chinese Classical Music-A
國樂Chinese Classical Music
Would you please give us an instruction to the Chinese musical instruments?
OK, let me start with some of the frequently used instruments. This is a guzheng and that is a pipa.
Are there any percussion instruments used in Chinese music?
Of course. Congs and drums are always played during the dragon and lion dances.
I saw somebody playing a bamboo flute that plays beautifully music.
竹子和簫都是用竹管做成的。 不過笛子是橫吹的， 簫是直吹的。
Horizontal flute and a vertical flute are both bamboo flutes. However horizontal flute is played horizontally, and a vertical flute is played vertically.
Do horizontal flute and a vertical flute song alike?
Let me play a piece of music for you with both flutes, and you will know how different they are.
