Brandon Q. (Alumni-H)

My name is Brandon. I am 14 years old and I was born in Beijing. I spent most of my life in Shanghai, but I have been mostly exposed to an American community. I compose and I have a strong interest in Chinese folk music and culture. After the experience in XiZhou, I have collected samples of folk material and analyzed them in terms of melodic, harmonic, formal, and rhythmic structure, as well as learned about the history and current status of Bai Minority music. The experience was a great one and I wish the best of luck to future participants.
