Maksim Mrvica teaches music kids with special needs in Korea

Croatian pianist Maksim Mrvica has been giving disabled Korean children music lessons. The classical-pop crossover pianist participated in the classes at Pony Chung Hall in southern Seoul, The Korea Herald reports. "All children should be surrounded in an environment full of love and support," said Mrvica in a statement released by his agency.

"In particular, children with disabilities can overcome the difficulties and prejudices that they may face, and gain confidence to realise their hopes and dreams through music. "Taking part in the Super Mentoring Class for the disabled was very emotional. "I’m very proud to have been involved in this event," he said. Mrvica is in Korea for nine days, during which time he will perform at the Paju Booksori Festival on Thursday and at the DMZ International Documentary Film Festival on Friday.
