When John Schwartz was born, there were serious health concerns. He had a combination of Cerebral Palsy and hydrocephalus. Shortly after birth he experienced a brain hemorrhage and required a shunt to be installed in the left side of his brain. The medical professionals expressed doubts that John would ever talk or walk. That was almost 35 years ago, and he has shattered every expectation. He lives a full life with his parents, Mary and Chuck, participating in many programs, including Living Resources’ Day Community Opportunities Program (DCOP). One thing is for sure, music is his passion.When John was six years old, he started taking piano lessons from Linda Fisher, the pianist at his church. He studied with her for many years, learning to play one-handed as the CP makes it difficult for him to use his right hand. John also sings, plays harmonica, guitar, djembe, and cajon making him a veritable one-man-band.John has participated in the DCOP Chorus as their piano accompanist since the group was formed seven years ago. Prior to the pandemic, the group met weekly to learn and rehearse music. They performed twice a year at the agency wide Day Program Award Ceremonies and sang Christmas Carols at the Living Resources holiday open houses. Kate Bugbee, his DCOP manager praised John by saying, “John is truly talented and phenomenal musician. He has shared a lot of inspiration and shows enthusiasm when he plays music with his peers.” His father added, “John is a remarkably courageous and talented young man.” The lesson John wants to share with the world is not to let others define your life. As John frequently tells others, “You can do anything you want!” Read more about this inspirational man on our webpage: www.livingresources.org/music-man-john-schwartz/ ... See MoreSee Less
