CHANG Herbert

Born in 1948, California, U.S.A. In 1959, at age 11, Chang entered Chinese Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing. The study started from elementary and then high school. In 1966, the Cultural Revolution interrupted his study, and in 1968, he was sent to Tianjing Gegu Farm to receive re-education. He grew rice there. Three and half years later, the government assigned him a violinist position in the Chinese Central Ballet, which at that time was a model troupe of Mao’s wife. In 1978, he was transferred back to the Central Conservatory to teach at the high school department. In 1979, Chang returned to the U.S, and studied at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Currently, he is a violin teacher in the U.S, and also a composer with two violin text books published by Mel Bay Music Publications; “Forty Studies for Violin” and “Daily Scale Exercises for Violin”.
