The pipa is known as the king of Chinese musical instruments because of its wide range, variable timbre, rich expressiveness and diverse playing skills. It has a history of more than 2,000 years and was introduced to China from Persia during the Qin Dynasty. Today, thanks to the hard work of many Chinese musicians, this ancient musical instrument with deep oriental charm has been brought to life on the mainstream stage of the West. The avant-garde composer Luo Hurrison, the minimalist master Terry Riley, and Philip Glass have all composed for the lute, and the symphony orchestra or chamber orchestra, as well as the jazz band, all have very good cooperation with the lute. Bard College in New York, Minnesota State University, and the University of Sydney have all offered undergraduate programs in pipa performance.

Guzheng (Chinese zither) is a native Chinese national musical instrument. As early as the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period, it was popular in the northwest region. Because of its wide range and beautiful timbre, it is known as the "King of Music", also known as "Oriental Piano". Compared with the crisp and bright pipa, the guzheng is more elegant and subtle, and the pronunciation is crisp and sweet, as smooth as a mountain spring. As the guzheng is a relatively easy-to-play instrument among the national musical instruments, it is beautiful and elegant to play, and more and more people like to learn the guzheng. In 2017, Bard College in New York took the lead in offering an undergraduate major in guzheng performance.
