The Erhu Group Class is open year round to students aged 8 years to adult and designed to be a basic introduction to erhu or the Chinese two-stringed fiddle. (Thereafter initiated students should generally switch to a private program to advance their studies.)
The Instrument: Descended from the 10th Century Mongolian Xi; also known as huqin; the erhu is now the most important solo and lead instrument in the Chinese orchestra. Students will learn bow control and fret-less finger work with basic tunes of the Chinese folk music tradition.
1st Call System. Mencius classes can run on our flex-group structure on a 1st-call basis: A student may sign up and be the 1st-call for a different date/time to have class and we'll post this schedule for 2-3 weeks. Thereupon, class will start and run accordingly per number of students signed up.
*Flex Group Structure. This class runs on a 12 wk term based on 1-6 students on incremental duration: 2 ppl 60 min, 3-6 ppl 90min.
