“Under the premise of not touching the system, focusing on strengthening undergraduates’ learning about traditional music and promoting the traditional music education from the skill learning of music theory to the level of culture are two approaches.” (Zuyin 2012) It will be better if government properly make classical music and market economy combine.

Being widespread, Confucianism greatly influences Chinese culture and hence modern life even today. Despite the fact that today modern China has overstepped these strictly limited roles, the Chinese are still thinking in terms of hierarchy.

For the United States, the so-called “Loss of China” was a a catastrophe, not only because the US supported Chiang Kai-shek in the last few years, but also because it seems to be a victory for the Soviet Union and the global Communism. For China, in 1949 started for the first time in its history the possibility to build foreign relations without being “suppressed by unequal treaties” by western powers. But China‘s relations to other countries remained very complicated and complex. With the Soviet Union, China had found an ideological partnership which changed in the following decades into rivalry.

There is a widespread viewpoint in the world: Chinese are introvert and mot much directly. Those stereotypes come from Chinese culture. In China, the Confucius’ thought has affecting Chinese culture and mind thousand years, which encourages people be patient and harmonious. Under this culture, outgoing will be regarded as impolite.
