On the 4th of February 2012, a group of twelve students came down to Siong Leng for an open house, to learn and know more about Nanyin.They were greeted by a short performance and then broken down into groups of three for a hands-on session to learn the basic techniques of playing each instrument. Namely the pipa, sanxian, dongxiao and erxian. At the end of the open house, four of the students who were able to grasp the techniques of each instrument better got a chance to perform a short piece in front of their friends.
