  •  Wei Guo

The Xindi Applied Piano Pedagogy (XAPP) was self-formulated by Professor Xindi, the Dean of the Music Education Institute of Xinghai Conservatory of Music (MEIXHCM), in 2001. After a series of scaffolding developments over a decade, the single instrumental teaching method is now developing into a holistic music educational system for the preparation of graduate music teachers at both primary and secondary levels. In addition, this particular pedagogy seems to have created a competitive force in the market of community music education in mainland China. This article explores the XAPP in a narrative manner whilst investigating the advantages it has over three classical repertoire-oriented piano methods in mainland China in the modern era.
