Chinese pipa player Wu Yuxia never says "no" to educational performances and projects since she believes that spreading the word about the four-stringed lute, a Chinese musical instrument with more than 2,000 years of history, is her life's work.

"Whenever I get the chance to do a concert for a young audience or invite students for a collaboration, I go for it," says Wu.

The Shanghai-born, Beijing-based pipa master has been playing the traditional instrument for nearly 50 years.
