Q: Are dizi techniques very different from that of the xiao? How would my experience in playing the flute translate?
A: For both the xiao and dizi, fingerings are similar but the embouchures required are entirely different.
Flute players would need to familiarise themselves with these before being able to play the dizi properly. Nevertheless, you would have a slight advantage over beginners, who are learning a wind instrument from scratch.
