Han, who also is an associate professor of music at MTSU, explained some of the various Chinese musical instruments on display at the center and what makes Chinese music so fascinating.

“In olden times, Chinese music notations only notated the main notes,” said Han, “so basically, it’s a framework. The musicians, through oral tradition, carried the nuance of each individual piece.”
