Peking University (PKU) professor Bryan Minghui Bi is on a mission to make “music accessible to all” by putting less importance on the competitive grading system for players of instruments and by creating more opportunities for amateurs.

Bi’s career is also an example of how scholars trained in Western music can help bring traditional Chinese music to the world stage.
