Hiking Up 13,000ft Mountain With Piano|

Desmond O’Keeffe hiked with a 100-year-old piano up a 13,000 foot Himalayan mountain so children could hear Mozart for the first time. Desmond is a piano tuner who embarked on this 13-month journey to the remote Himalayan mountains. The villagers at the top of the mountain live at one of the highest altitudes in the world and have never seen a piano before.

The remarkable 13-month mission started in Desmond’s piano shop in Camden, North London. O’Keeffe got the idea when a teacher told him she dreamt of teaching piano in the Himalayan mountains. Due to Desmond’s efforts, the children in the village are now learning to play the piano.
