The One Handed Concert Pianist

This man was born with only one arm but has become the world’s only one-handed professional pianist. Nicholas McCarthy, 24, from Tadworth, Surrey, was told at his first audition for a music school that he should stop trying to learn because he was wasting his time. But Nicholas has had the last laugh – after becoming the first and only known one-handed pianist to graduate from the Royal College of Music and now tours the world performing.
