Chinese instrument have a long history, a wide variety, and bright national characteristics, which shows the creativity and wisdom of Chinese people. According to incomplete statistics, there are more than three hundred species of musical instruments in China now. These are different types, different properties, and different color musical instruments. ‍‍‍Most of them can be classified into four categories: woodwind instruments, bowed strings instruments, percussion instruments, and plucked strings instruments‍‍‍.
