Small Wonders
G, 1995 78 minutes


Laid-off music instructor Roberta Guaspari-Tzavaras founds a non-profit organization to teach violin to 150 students. Guaspari-Tzavaras is a demanding teacher who expects extreme levels of dedication from her pupils. The payoff is public acclaim when the students perform before a New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden, then play at a Carnegie Hall benefit and meet with legendary musicians Isaac Stern and Itzhak Perlman.
