For film makers needing a score with traditional Chinese instruments, here’s a site to do quick research on Chinese instruments. Spend a few minutes here and you’ll soon pass the quiz to identify the Er-Hu vs. the Liuqin, or the Dizi vs. the Bawu. You’ll recognize nearly all the sounds from movies you’ve seen.

(The site is Melody of China, a San Francisco-based Chinese musical group. They also have their own Chinese-music web links.
