A platform for nurturing talented people who can use foreign languages to teach traditional Chinese music at Confucius Institutes abroad should be set up to meet the increasing demand, experts said.

As of this month, 500 Confucius Institutes have been established in 134 countries around the world. Many are in need of teachers who can teach Chinese music, according to Ling Zi, former associate executive editor of Little Performer Magazine, who has visited many Confucius Institutes in United States in recent years.

"From my communication with the directors of those institutes, I know that for a long period of time they have focused only on the teaching of Chinese language and a general concept of Chinese culture," she said. But many lack musical elements.
