After the death of his father when he was thirteen, Guan continued with his father’s friend Ye Shimeng and Zhang Xiangtao. He also studied with the leading players of three different schools; Yang Zongji (Chinese: 楊宗稷;1865–1933), the leading player in Beijing, the Daoist Qin Heming, and the Buddhist monk Wucheng. Before 1949, Guan did some teaching at the Yenching University, but had most of his meagre income from selling paintings and repairing old musical instruments and furniture. In 1952, he became a teacher and assistant researcher at the Zhongyang Yinyue Xueyuan (Central Conservatory of Music) and a leading force at the Beijing Guqin Yanjiuhui (Beijing Guqin Research Institute), both in Beijing.

He also recreated and performed many pieces, including Guangling San, Youlan (Elegant Orchid) and Da Hujia (Great Barbarian Pipes), that only existed as notation through a process known as dapu (〔打譜〕). These pieces have become part of the core repertory of guqin music. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
