PLUM'S GREAT DVD's(in English and English/Chinese)
To say we're excited about these DVDs would be an understatement. Many are DVD formats of our VCD's but audio and visual qualities are higher and, most importantly, the menu allows you to pick CHINESE or ENGLISH (most are subtitled, a couple are dubbed). These particular DVD's contain all the same material as the VCD's; the main difference being the English!

Many of our other DVDs are, natively, in English, and we have selected the finest Teachers and Masters to represent at Plum. Here you will find hand-picked, individually reviewed titles, covering traditional styles exceptionally taught by some of the best teachers of our time.

For significantly less than a month's worth of lessons, you can now experience some of the best instruction available.
