JW Music was founded in 2009 as one of the premier music education studios in the Greater Vancouver area. Owned and operated by Jennifer Jiwei Zhao (renowned mezzo-soprano) and Nicole Ge Li (erhu virtuoso), JW specializes in the instruction of traditional Chinese musical instruments and voice training. The studio also plays an important role as a conduit of Chinese culture in Canada through its teaching members’ musical performances and active community involvements. Studio instructors are all graduates of internationally known musical academies, including notably the Central Conservatory of China, Shanghai Conservatory of Music and the UBC Department of Music. All lessons are professionally taught using current methodology and curriculum material. Our goal is to both enhance students’ musical skills and aptitudes and enrich their appreciation of their instruments of choice.
