Hi, I am Rachel. I have been playing the Guqin for several years. I am a member of the Chinese Qin Association. I have won a bronze medal in the 2017national guqin competition0. I am currently teaching online guqin class and local offline teaching.

In addition to the beautiful and quiet sound of the guqin, the long history of the guqin and its precipitation in traditional Chinese culture are also fascinating.

If you come to Chengdu for tourism, you are not only satisfied with eating hot pot, visiting scenic spots, watching pandas, listening to Sichuan opera and other traditional tourism projects, hoping to have some special experiences, and you happen to be interested in traditional culture, then welcome to [R.Studio] Participate in the Guqin Experience Activity "A Date with the Qin".

很幸运成为Rachel一对一的课程体验学员。虽然仅是1个小时的课程,但Rachel极其精简及专业的讲解,让我整体了解了“古琴”的基本历史及乐理。即便我是个音乐小白,但Rachel独特的耐心及细致,让我一步一步走近了"古琴",不仅仅是眼见、耳听,更是手动着体验“古琴”的韵律。 不得不提“古琴”中充满了中华文化儒、道之家的精髓及哲学,这不仅仅中华的哲学,其实更多的是普世的哲学理念。谢谢Rachel,能让我有这么一次非凡的体验。很棒!

I simply cannot recommend this experience enough. If you love music, you mustn't skip a Guqin lesson with Rachel: she's an amazing, thoughtful and kind host, and the instrument itself is unique, versatile, and truly authentic. If I could, I would definitely take more lessons!

Rachel is a thoughtful and friendly host and teacher. I felt at ease as did my 8-yrs old son who very much enjoyed the experience. And I learned enough to get me started on the guqin musical journey!
