Yang began playing the guitar at the age of seven, and began formal tuition when she was ten, studying under the famous guitarist Chen Zhi, later Chairman of the China Classical Guitar Society. Her public debut was at the First China International Guitar Festival where she met immediate acclaim. At the same time, she was presented with her first foreign guitar (a "Pepe" children's guitar from Aria), by the celebrated Japanese guitar maker Masaru Kohno. Read more on Last.fm

Born this day in 1887 - Heitor Villa-Lobos !
To celebrate the birthday of this Brazillian composer, here's a new video from a live performance of Mazurka-Choro (from Suite Populaire Bresilienne). The suite is one of his earlier works for guitar, and shows he was writing lovely music for guitar even before he met Segovia.

My nephew is preparing for his ABRSM exam on guitar. We played this duet together to help him with his preparation. I find children often enjoy & benefit from playing along with others.

Wandering around the historical Qianmen Street in Beijing and the traditional old commercial street of Dashilanr, I feel the excitement of being a tourist whilst at the same time the nostalgia of returning home. I found it interesting that when I was teenager living in Beijing I preferred to go to the very modern places in the city - I was always impressed to see the changes to people's lives. Now coming back to my hometown from abroad I particularly like to go to those traditional locations in the city that have a distinctive character that belongs only to us.
