Tranquil Resonance Studio, established in 1998, was named by the late Chinese painter Huen Moon Yan, translated into English by SFSU Prof. Charles Egan, and our logo written in calligraphy by master artist Fu Wenyan, to express the tranquil spirit and energy of the music, art, tea, and poetry of China’s traditional scholar. Tranquil Resonance Studio is a center promoting the learning and understanding of classical Chinese culture, through teaching the music and culture of the guqin and guzheng, passing on the traditions of the Chinese art of tea, introducing the literati arts to the greater community and forming a bridge that links friends, scholars, artists, and musicians of the East Asian traditions. We strive to promote traditional Chinese arts, through lessons, performances, workshops and lectures to the greater community. Tranquil Resonance Studio’s mission is to continue the study of ancient Chinese arts and to pass on this classical culture to the next generation, preserving traditions millennia old.
