This DMA portfolio contains materials and a written critical commentary relating to the work I have completed towards a Doctor of Musical Arts in Performance degree at the University of Salford. My doctoral programme consists of four performance-based projects and some public performances:

1. CD recording: Chinese traditional piano music (recorded in Salford)
2. Public piano recital in Peel Hall, University of Salford
3. Lecture at the University of Salford
4. Cross-disciplinary concert performance and recording (Wuhan)
5. Public concert performances
6. Supporting material

The portfolio itself contains the following:

• A written commentary explaining the history and significance of Chinese traditional piano music, and the background about the projects that I undertook for the doctoral programme.
• Video and Audio recordings of public performances and concerts, early recordings
• Concert and recital programmes of public performances
• News and interviews of the public performances
• The published Articles and reviews published in newspapers, journals and online
• Magazines and news of interviews, documentary
• Awards
• Supporting material showing my professional standing and significant past and current activity as an internationally recognised concert pianist and educator with a specialist interest in bridging Eastern and Western cultures.

The portfolio illustrates various roles in which I have been an ambassador for Chinese traditional piano music, which I explore and develop in the context of western society. I have been involved on a number of levels, from soloist performer, recording artist and collaborator with other artists in different fields, researcher and author, through to devising and writing concert programme notes and producing recital and concerts. It is in these ways that the work captured in this portfolio represents a significant addition to existing knowledge, commensurate with the Doctor of Musical Arts awards.
