1. Description of Our Community
The main purpose of our work is to let more people understand Chinese music in Miaoli. Because of the progress of the times, the popular music styles have changed. Many people gradually stopped listening to traditional Chinese music. We have been familiar with the history, timbre, and the musical instruments in Miaoli. We hope that through this work, more people can understand the characteristics of the Chinese music in Miaoli.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
In the process of making this page, our team encountered a lot of difficulties and challenges. The first challenge was to decide who to be involved in the program. At first, some people refused, but after the teacher's encouragement, a few more joined, solving the problem of insufficient members. Then, deciding the topic is also a big challenge. After our repetitious discussion and with the teacher's suggestions, we finally decided to introduce the local music promoter in Miaoli - Chun-Ping Lee. Also, it was a challenge to assign work fairly among team members. Luckily, after proper planning and numerous discussions, the work was finally completed.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
In Taiwan, the public has gradually forgotten traditional Chinese music, and has gradually been attracted to Western music. In this competition, through interviews and books, and under the guidance of Mr. Chun-Ping Lee, who appreciated the development of local music, we have a deeper understanding of the traditional Chinese musical instrument system. We hope that our web page will allow the public to explore, and understand traditional Chinese music again.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
We worked together to do each task. At first, we contacted Chun-Ping Lee by phone. Then, we began to discuss the content of the interview, and film shooting methods. We tried to avoid copyright infringement. In the interview, when the teacher told us that she has been promoting the development of the local music for several years, we learned that sticking to one thing may slowly change the things around you because of your persistence. We started making our web pages by teaching Xara in our professional classes, and we also completed the translation of web-related content with the help of our English teacher. In the meantime, we needed to cope with the pressure from endless quizzes and exams, which helped us to learn to better manage time.
