Disability no hindrance to fine tuning piano
By Chen Huizhi
BLIND people in Shanghai are more likely to find work as masseurs, but Zhang Zhenyu walked a different path.
The 38-year-old, despite the disability, runs a successful second-hand piano dealership in Jing’an District.
Eloquent and quick-minded, Zhang is living his dream and doing something that he knows he is good at.
“All talk and no work is the problem of many blind people. What they actually need to do is to take a step forward,” he says.
Being a music enthusiast and educated as a piano tuner at Shanghai School for the Blind, Zhang started off as a masseur too but quit the job after a few years.
