" Dr. Qian is a fun teacher to work with...  Lessons with him is always meaningful to me.      ( I have reached the goals of being a  top player in Texas and a music major in college and studying with Frank Cohen from the Cleveland Orchestra). Without Dr. Qian, all of this (my honors) would not be possible.. "
