Summary
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star may not be the most sophisticated piece of music ever written. But hearing it played in concert by seventy very young, very dedicated violin students is wonderful indeed. In this touching and inspiring documentary, we meet the gifted violinist and teacher, Dr. Chen Ho Yun. He works with YECCA (Youth Empowerment Center for Creative Achievement) in South Central Los Angeles, formed to provide low cost after-school music education for ghetto children. Chen Ho begins working closely with the children, empathizes with their vulnerability and their excitement, " ... until the kids' ears, minds and hearts open up." He teaches them discipline and respect for themselves as well as for their violins, to their parents' amazement and delight. The fact that Chen Ho is Korean and his pupils are African-American and Hispanic is important to YECCA, as this community is extremely sensitive to racial prejudice. After struggling and enduring hate-filled times in L.A., adults want to create a new age of cultural understanding for their kids. As one budding violinist says "people look at you differently when you say you play the violin."
