The Toronto Guqin Society (TQS) was founded in 2005 to provide a platform for connecting and expanding the Toronto community of guqin players, but more importantly share the experience and joy in authentic Chinese elegant and elite culture for all to enjoy – in and beyond the Greater Toronto Area.

We are proud to be part of a global movement to promote Hanfu as the authentic Chinese dress, and have for a decade publicly spread the knowledge of the fashion and practice of Confucian etiquette and rituals. We have successfully organized workshops and Chengren-Li, the coming-of-age ceremony, to raise awareness of Chinese culture beyond the hustle-bustle of popular folk tradition.

We specialize in:

  • Public lectures on Chinese culture, Confucian rituals and etiquette
  • Performances on guqin, Chinese ritual/court music ensemble
  • Shèlí, the Archery ceremony
  • Hands-on workshops on Hanfu: tailoring, design, and history
  • 1 on 1 or group guqin classes, via our own Standards of the Guqin curriculum, taught in English, Chinese, or Japanese

 

We are happy to provide custom-tailored events for your organization or institution’s needs! Just contact our chairman, Juni Yeung, at:

(647) 631-1702
or
email: jt_revolution@hotmail.com

We do request for honorariums for invite performances and presentations.

Please inquire us for rates. For lesson curriculum and lesson tuition rates, please see the Guqin curriculum page.

    Hi,

    I was wondering if you know anything about Antique Guqins? I have one that belonged to my great grandmother and I have some pictures of it along with the stamps on the back. I was wondering if you were able to appraise this for me. If you can provide me with any information and approx value I would really appreciate it. If not would you guys know who the right person to contact for this information?

    Thanks!

      Nicky, if you’re in Toronto, there’s always Musideum or Kensington Melody. If you’re not around the GTA, I recommend online. There’s rather few places where you can buy those disasters that were abound 10 years ago, but SoundOfAsia is a safe bet. There are always more around if you Google.

      Hello Karl!

      “Standards of the Guqin” is a print-on-demand book. Order online by clicking on the book cover to the right –>
      and have it shipped directly to your home in Taiwan! As qin books are a niche product, they’re seldom held in bookstores.

    您好!我是浙江大學古籍研究所唐宸,經唐世璋先生提醒,我看到貴社翻譯了拙文《明汪芝〈西麓堂琴統〉成書時間考辨》。我於古琴素無研究,只是從版本學角度對該書的成書略作分析,故拙文實為班門弄斧之作,難免貽笑大方之家。承蒙您翻譯全文,拜讀後覺得翻譯水平很高,我很感動,對貴社和您所作的工作深表敬佩!希望將來有機會聆聽指教,多謝!我目前從事中國古典文獻學專業的學習,對古籍版本比較熟悉,手頭也有大量古籍善本的影印材料。倘若今後在古文獻資源獲取方面我可以為貴社做點什麼,請隨時來信。乙未孟夏望前一日,古歙唐宸敬上。
