Violinist Itzhak Perlman Strikes a Chord With Young Musicians

He passes baton during summer program

Each summer, Itzhak Perlman — the world-renowned violinist and conductor — devotes six weeks to teaching and mentoring exceptionally talented young musicians on the shores of Shelter Island, N.Y., home of the Perlman Music Program.

See also: Joshua Bell and Marvin Hamlisch.

Perlman taught himself to play the violin as a toddler, while also overcoming polio. Now his students praise him for his patience and ability to motivate them to try beyond their expectations. My Generation's Bill Boggs got a chance to learn how this iconic musician is helping young people reach their full potential.
