Music at China Institute Logo.png
For over 5,000 years, music has been essential to Chinese culture. Its language is tonal, its poems were once sung, and traditionally an educated person was understood to be a musical expert.

Music at China Institute 华美音乐 is a collaborative program between the US-China Music Institute and China Institute in New York City, bringing the beauty, wisdom and philosophy of traditional Chinese music to people of all ages and backgrounds in the heart of Lower Manhattan.

In Fall 2019, classes will be offered at China Institute for music lovers to learn Guqin 古琴, Erhu 二胡, and Guzheng 古筝. For toddlers, a Mommy and Me series will bring the fun of learning Chinese musical rhythms and movements to their intellectual and social development.

Small group classes are taught by award-winning musicians and educators carefully selected by the US-China Music Institute.
