Deaf pianist hits the right notes by helping other disabled performers
Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 16, 2013
For Ron Tan, who was born with 80 per cent hearing loss, teaching himself to play the piano was a turning point in his life.
“I realised that what I really want is to produce music, and that has to come from my heart.”
And having discovered and developed his own passion, Ron is now eager to help other people with disabilities stoke theirs.
His talent management outfit for special needs performers, called Inclusive Art Movement (I.AM), is one of the entries in the Singapore International Foundation’s Young Social Entrepreneurs program, which seeks to inspire, equip and enable youths of different nationalities to embark on social enterprises.
