Wang is a teacher and a professional violin maker based at the Sichuan Conservatory of Music.

An accidental visit to a workshop when she was 18 inspired her career of making the instrument as she was stunned by the process of turning pieces of wood into instruments that created delightful sounds. By that stage, she had been playing violin for 12 years.

She was later able to grab a place at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music as an undergraduate student majoring in violin making.

Wang believes that the craft has helped her build a calm character.
