He is a sixth-generation transmitter (counting from Zhang Kongshan) of the Shu school of qin music, having studied with his maternal grandfather, Yu Shaoze. Zeng is also a gifted maker of the instrument.
Zeng’s style is fluid and yet restrained, focusing on simplicity and roundness. His melodies are often meditative and removed. Very little ornamentation is used (sparingly) to add to the flavour of the pieces he plays. On the other hand, his rendition of Liu Shui is very vigorous and intensive unlike modern renditions as he imitates the sound of full bodied water churning.
