What if you are handicapped; can you learn to play the piano? Or if you become handicapped; can you continue to play the piano?
Check the comments below to learn more about these inspirational pianists in short documentary-like segments. Add anyone else that you might know below too. Thanks.

I think in Singapore, there's this Purple movement or something.

I attended the inaugural True Colors Concert and was humbled by the performances; the participants are all handicapped in some way.

There was a pianist from Singapore - Azariah Tan - he's almost deaf - but he played Chopin's Fantasie Impromptu very well. Other performances hailed from across the globe; with one other pianist (Seong Il Kim), violinists, excellent singers, talented dancers, a digital orchestra, and even an enthusiastic Children's Choir.

It was an excellent night that I will not soon forget!

Has anyone ever taught dyslexic students? What is your experience teaching them; like will they have problems reading music notes or understanding concepts of rhythm and/or note/rest values? And how would you help them overcome their problem - for eg. would you use large staves/notes, marking on the piano keys, etc.?
