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:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
