The daughter of a Chinese mother and British father, Hannah Brock started playing the drums at her school in Beijing at the age of 3. By 4, she had started the piano and the guzheng, an ancient instrument that looks rather like a large zither and is played with plectrums taped to the fingers. Now all of 13 years old, the young maestro is onstage now, showing us what she and her guzheng are made of.
