6 reasons why you should learn from us


In Eason Music we recognise that different people have different objectives when learning the Dizi.
Thus the choice is yours to choose to learn for leisure or for exams.


When you learn for leisure, you can have a stress free learning experience by choosing the types of songs that you want to learn. You pick up the basics of the instrument through learning your choice songs.


When you learn for exams, you have a choice of either following the examination syllabus of Teng-CI-NTU Chinese instrumental examination or NAFA Chinese instrumental examination. Instructors will formulate lesson plans based on either syllabus.

What Our Students Say

  • Tess Teo
    I feel that my instructor, Jason, tailors the lesson individually to a pace where I am comfortable. He teaches patiently, helps me troubleshoot techniques when I have difficulty, as well as encourages me. His lessons are engaging, and he is flexible in lesson scheduling. It's getting easier to hit the highest notes now, which I definitely wouldn't have been able to do if I just tried learning on my own. I liked the flexibility of lesson scheduling!! Also Jason chose my flute for me so I didn't have to stress about what to pick for beginner level.

  • Tricia Chan
    My instructor, Andy is understanding, encouraging, and paces the lessons well. The Dizi lessons has helped me express my self better in another form, and I enjoy them. The lesson timings are also flexible, which makes it easier for me to plan things. Although I just started learning online due to COVID-19, where physical lessons are not possible for wind instruments, I am still learning the basics well. Thank you!

  • Jade Seah
    It's been 3 months since I've picked up the Dizi under Andy, and I am a complete beginner. But Andy has been really patient with me during lesson. At times when techniques are difficult, he understands and encouraged me, which gives me the extra motivation to practice! Now, I am starting to be able to play some simple children tunes. Slowly but surely, I will get to play my favourite songs :) Eason Music School is also very flexible with re-scheduling of lessons when I inform them early of dates that I can't make it to lessons.
    Jade Seah
  • I recently started Dizi lessons with Kok Wee . He is very patient, helpful and very clear in instructing and guiding me though the lessons. He constantly shows me encouragement as well :) I can play a few songs now and am enjoying it. I couldn’t play a single note at the beginning, which was just a 2-3 months ago! Eason Music School has accessible instruments. The staff are helpful and friendly too.

Frequently Asked Questions

1Is the Dizi difficult to learn?
Usually consisting of 6 finger holes, 1 membrane hole and 1 blow hole, the Dizi is a relatively easy instrument to pick up. The Dizi has a delightful smooth tone, much like a cheery bird chirp, garnering praise from many. But just like all instruments, mastering the Dizi takes many years and practice.
2How much does a Dizi cost?
A starter grade Dizi costs about $30. We also sell different Dizis of various grades. You may visit our Dizi online store to view more.
3Why are there so many keys?

The Dizi is categorised into the Xindi, Qudi and Bangdi.

Xindi is the lowest pitched, with the keys Low F, Low G, Low A and Low Bb.

The Qudi has a middle ranged pitch, with the keys C, D and E.

The Bangdi has the highest pitch, with the keys F, G, High A, High Bb, High C and High D. The higher the pitch, the smaller the Dizi.

For beginners, it is usually recommended to start with a D key Dizi, before moving on to the different keys, which caters to different repertoire.

4What is the Dizi made of?
The Dizi is made from dried bamboo. Aged dried bamboo will enhance the tone colour of the Dizi. White and purple bamboo are most commonly seen in Dizi making, however more niche materials such as sandalwood are used as well.
5What is the difference between the Dizi and the Xiao?
The Dizi has a range of pitch, from the mellow low tones to the chirpy bird tones, and it is played horizontally. The Xiao sounds very smooth and mellow, and it is played vertically.
6What is the Dimo and why do I need it?
The Dimo, also known as the flute membrane, is placed over the membrane hole which is right beside the blow hole. It vibrates when the player blows into the Dizi and this vibration sound is unique to the Dizi. The Dimo also enhances the tone quality and colour of the Dizi.
7What Dizi should I choose if I am a beginner?
You can start with the D key, and progress on to G key. There are many repertoire in D and G written for Dizi.
8What can I play with the Dizi?
You can play a wide variety of music! From traditional pieces to pop songs, the repertoire is endless.
9How do I play the Dizi?
The blow hole of the Dizi should be perpendicular to your lips, and your lips should form an embouchure to direct air into the blow hole of the Dizi.
