Who am I?
My name is JJ – I’ve taught the Chinese flute for the past 12 years in dozens of schools in Singapore. I’ve won several national music competitions, went to the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, and achieved a Diploma of Merit from the Beijing Conservatory of Music in Chinese Flute.
Aside from that, I love music. I’m a founder of a symphony orchestra and am a member of multiple national Chinese Orchestras in Singapore. Lastly, I’m a piano teacher and play the western flute in community symphony orchestras too!.
I often get similar questions when teaching the Chinese flute and realized most materials about this instrument is in Mandarin (i.e not accessible to English speaking audiences).
So I thought I’d put this course together to show the fundamentals of how to play the Chinese flute, and to hopefully share the beauty of this instrument for decades to come 🙂
