Thereafter, he performed with the Orchestra and Guzheng ensemble in NanYang Polytechnic Chinese Orchestra, under tutelage from Mike Chiang and Johnny Chia.
With several years of experience under his belt in Chinese orchestra, Guzheng ensembles, and solo performances, Zhan Kuang begun conducting private Guzheng lessons for the public. His students and/or student's parents commented that he will always find fun ways to teach that made his students eager to learn.
