  1. Very reminiscent of “Music of the Heart” and the violinist who “wasn’t quite good enough” that started teaching at risk kids in Harlem. She finally saw her dream come true playing on stage, with her students, at Carnagie Hall with Isaac Stern, Itzhak Perlman, and many other virtuosos. Awesome!
