“Music is the universal language of mankind”

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)

The Carl Bechstein Foundation is committed to promoting the musical talents of children and young people. The aim is to enable as much – underprivileged – youth as possible to learn the piano. Children who play an instrument develop their personalities better, stand in good stead for life, improve their IQs and are stronger in today’s often cold and materialistic world.
