Anyone Can Learn To Play The Violin

She believed passionately in the violin
And that any child could play one
Proving that true created a program of
Teaching the violin in Harlem public school s
Impossible you might say but you would be wrong
She is known as Roberta throughout music's world
Her name Roberta Guaspari-Tzavaras
Roberta is a woman who doesn't believe in "No" for
she is proof positive that any young person can
learn to play the violin and learn to play it very well.
Her origin and background are worth the wonderful
Movie made about her. The title is "Small Wonders"
Made in 1996, in which she plays herself very well
Belief in our youth is bettered when we help them

"Anyone can learn to play the violin"--unless you're me. LOL I can't even read music; only two things I can play are the kazoo or the spoons! LOL I can sing, though! LOL Well done, Bill; bravo!
