Starting something new can be incredibly tough. However, when you know what you are doing helps others it can help you soar over the obstacles in your way. Our mission at Project Eve is to inspire others when we celebrate the successes of individuals that make the world a better place. With that in mind, Project Eve is thrilled to work with Corning® Gorilla® Glass to share the story of Ambre Hammond from their Incredibly Tough Video Series. In Ambre’s video, we’ll see how she uses her passion for music to uplift and inspire impoverished children in some of the world’s most remote places. The Incredibly Tough Video Series highlights the amazing stories of incredibly tough people, using incredibly tough devices, to do incredibly tough things.

Earlier this month Gorilla® Glass premiered its video Musically Tough featuring Ambre Hammond. Ambre’s passion and talent as a pianist started at a young age. Ambre started taking piano lessons from her mother when she was just three years old. She performed in her first public concert at five. By the time she was twelve, Ambre had received the Associate and Licentiate Diplomas of music in the same year. This accomplishment earned her a world record, which she still holds today. At the age of 16, in Argentina, Hammond won first prize in her first international music competition. As she grew up, her accomplishments only continued to mount.

As a professional concert pianist Ambre has performed as a soloist and with orchestras all over Australia, Asia, Europe and the Americas.  However, Ambre wasn’t content to focus her entire professional life performing for paying audiences. Ambre understood the transformative power music had in her own life as a child and wanted to be able to share it with children who don’t have the same access.  In 2013 Ambre started Girl Piano Truck with a goal to use music to uplift and inspire underprivileged kids around the world. Ambre has taken her project to India, Thailand, East Timor, Belarus, the Philippines and now Tanzania. The concept is simple, Ambre takes a piano or keyboard, puts it in the back of a truck and goes to remote and deprived areas of the world giving free concerts in schools and orphanages. For many of the children, it is their first opportunity to see and hear a piano being played in person. Ambre brings her music to engage and entertain these kids while she inspires them, sparks their creativity, and creates moments of joy.

The video above showcases GIRL PIANO TRUCK on its recent expedition to Tanzania. Watch the video and see Ambre play her music as she visits tiny schools and orphanages in remote parts of Tanzania. Each stop brings different challenges. Amber frequently needs to make on the fly repairs and find inventive ways to power her keyboard. The wide smiles she receives from her audiences make everything worth it. On the final evening of her travels through Tanzania, Ambre relates, “Tonight showed a true moment of joy….” As she was leaving to go home, Ambre was able to donate the keyboard she took on her trip to one of the orphanages she visited so one boy could continue to take piano lessons. Ambre finished noting that “despite life’s day to day struggles…music seemed to provide a sparkling glimmer of hope and joy to children who otherwise have little or no hope.” The ultimate incentive to surmount tough challenges!
