She began studying the classical guitar at the age of 11 (Chinese age) under Professor Chen Zhi (陳志). One year later, she appeared as a performer on the television program "Classical Guitar's Technique and Performance" of China's official national television station CCTV. In 1995, she enrolled into the Middle School (high school) of the prestigious Central Conservatory of Music (CCM) in China. In 2000, she was admitted to the CCM.
She has received tremendous international attention and has been highly praised by many celebrated masters, such as Professor Michael Lewin of The Royal Academy of Music, John Williams, Alexander Sergei Ramirez, and Lachine Suzuki, to name a few.
Irma Costanzo of Argentina especially appreciates highly Li's performance. She said: "I believe I will appreciate your concerts on the world stage."
