Bookmark and Share

Already one of the most celebrated pianists in the world, Chinese phenom Lang Lang is always working on new music and touring the globe, but these days, he seems to be spending even more of his time focused on his philanthropic efforts, which may one day positively affect more people than his music. The classical musician has just recently pledged to donate another $5 million in funds and supplies to help ensure students across the United States have a chance to learn to play the instrument that has turned him into a globally adored figure. Why? Forbes asked him about what makes this donation so important and why he feels that teaching the next generation how to tickle the ivory might be exactly what the world needs.
