Q: Does anyone know how I can learn to play the guqin in central Chongqing?

I'm moving to China to teach ESL in central Chongqing. I will probably also be starting a choir there. My certification is in music education. The guqin has been one of my favorite instruments for years, and I would love to learn how to play it while I am there, but I'm really not sure how to go about doing so. Does anyone have any idea where I might go or whom I might contact?

If I were you, once in Chongqing go to a music store and inquire about purchasing one and also lessons to learn how to play it.  I am sure they will know where to send you.

You can also spread the word in your school that you wish to learn to play the gugin, maybe one of the students will know or their parents or grandparents.

and if the above does not work, inquire at which parrk people play musical instruments, and visit it looking for a person playing the gugin.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
