LI Jin-Tu, born in Taipei in 1900, was a violinist and music educator. LI graduated from the Japanese School of the Governor-General of Taiwan in Taipei and the Tokyo School of Music in Ueno, Japan. He was the first Taiwanese student to study violin performance in Japan. After returning to Taiwan, he began to teach in the music department of Taipei Second Normal School (now known as National Taipei University of Education). When the ROC government retreated to Taiwan, LI taught in the music department at the Taiwan Provincial Teachers College (now known as National Taiwan Normal University). In 1926 he founded Taiwan’s very first string quartet and in 1932 held Taiwan’s first ever violin competition. In 1945 he helped in founding the Taiwan Garrison Command Orchestra (now known as National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra).
