MUSICAL PERFORMANCE AND EDUCATION
RAISING FUNDS THROUGH MUSICAL ENDEAVOURS
When in Ladakh, we use music to unite through local performance, gathering people from all walks of life to exchange knowledge and seek new possibilities of a sustainable future.
Many of Desmond's ventures were funded through piano mending and tuning. The members of our team may not be experts in piano fixing, but we do have a wealth of willing musicians, composers and creatives ready to give for our cause. See events section on more details of future performances in aid of The Desmond Gentle Trust.
ENSURING PIANOS ARE WELL MAINTAINED
Desmond has housed pianos in numerous parts of the world. Lucky for us, these are some of the most unique and astounding areas to visit. Unfortunately, it means they are not readily accessible for tuning and repairs. With our connections in Ladakh we aim to work with professional piano fixers and tuners to ensure the tribe of pianos he has left in Ladak will continue to song for years to come.
When we visit the pianos, we will not only mend and tune them, but we will ensure they are being put to good use. We intend to educate the younger generation in the skills of piano mending and tuning, as well as the universal language of music. Combining these aspects of the Trust with any other skills we may have to offer, we intend to make a marked impact on the lives of others.
