Mario Padovani was born with Poland Syndrome. As a child he was told by several well-known and respected music instructors that he would not be able to play the piano with both hands, but with the blessing of his parents he quit lessons and with their encouragement went on to develop his own two-handed technique. That was just the start of a musical career that has lasted a life time and brings joy to all that come in contact with his gift.
On the show Mario; Operatic tenor and pop/rock vocalist, instrumentalist, songwriter, composer, producer, arranger, author and music instructor, will share his inspirational story. As well as telling us how he has gone on to become a successful multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter, instructor and composer of “The Poland Syndrome Documentary.”
He currently is working to raise awareness about Poland Syndrome and to bring light to the possibilities that life has to offer especially through the arts.
