Tim Johnson: Music market starts to boom in China

From the Detroit Free Press:

From violins and pianos, and on to bassoons, guitars, cellos and nearly every other musical instrument, China is taking the global music market by storm.

China already makes more violins and pianos than any other nation on Earth, and its production of brass, woodwind and electronic instruments is soaring.

Workshops in factory towns such as Pinggu, on the northeastern outskirts of Beijing, pump out thousands of instruments a month for youngsters across the United States and the Western world.
