What Our Students Say

  • I have been learning the Guzheng from Zipeng for about 2 years now. He is very good and kind! He teaches me how I can play songs really well! I can play Grade 6 pieces with ease now! Eason Music School has also great flexibility, such that it is possible to stop lessons for about 1-2 weeks during my exam periods. Thank you Eason!

  • I have been learning the Guzheng with Hong Ying for about 1 over years and I have to say that I am pretty satisfied so far. Hong Ying is patient and great. I am also learning together with a friend in a group, and that's good as we get to learn pieces and perform together. 10 out of 10!

  • I have been learning the Guzheng with Ya Yi since End 2019. Ya Yi is very patient and her English is amazing! This really helps with the lessons as she is able to articulate out the techniques clearly, especially to a student who can't read or speak Chinese. It has just been only a few months of lessons but it does enable me to try out some simple scores. Eason staff are not pushy and the people are friendly. The availability of English speaking instructor is definitely a plus point! Keep up the video postings! It is very entertaining and also informative at the same time. :)

    Zipeng's cool and relaxed about my Guzheng playing, not strict about getting everything perfect. Those strict kind of instructors give me too much stress and makes me dislike the instrument. Learning the Guzheng mainly helped me to relax and have better mental stimulation.

  • Si Jia is a calm, punctual and attentive teacher. Her after-lesson video clips have helped me in perfecting my practice every week. In addition to instructing new techniques, she also shared with me about history, background and composers of all the songs which she had selected carefully. Those gave me a deeper and better understanding of the Chinese culture and music. Starting from scratch, I have gained a rapid wwwelopment in playing Guzheng as Si Jia gave me the 3 - 4 homework songs per week. Within 5 - 6 months, I can play most of the elementary songs and necessary fingering techniques (for beginners) in a confident manner. Despite a short period of time, I find that Eason Music is an excellent enrichment school of music. The School has timely offered online learning courses during the Circuit Breaker period which reflects its flexibility and laudable student-centered mindset. Thank you!

  • I started learning the Guzheng under Yayi in February 2019. Yayi is very paitient during lessons, teaching me step by step. I learnt the basics well. She is also very attentive towards small details, to make sure I do not make any mistakes with my techniques when learning. Eason Music is a great school to learn in. Some days I will end classes early in school, and arrive early at Eason. Instead of waiting for my lesson to start, I could practice freely in a vacant room if they are available. That's great as I did not have to waste any time and could also warm up before my lesson started. Thank you!
