About this title


The author, a young violinist, explains how she became involved with music, and describes the life of a traveling soloist

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-- A gifted young concert violinist tells the story of her early life, years of study, and launching of her career. The style is breezy and brisk, dispelling any thought of a classical musician as stuffy and solemn. Salerno-Sonnenberg recounts in a straightforward, colloquial manner her struggles to succeed. Born in Italy, she came to America at the age of eight, knowing three words of English:"Yankees," " America," and "hot dog." She talks about baseball and taking walks in New York with as much enthusiasm as she describes the intricacies of the violin. Throughout, she adds details that will delight her readers: when she first attended the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia she was too small to pull the huge front doors open and had to wait for someone to come out before she could enter. The freshness of her expressive writing will keep readers turning the pages, even if they are not musicians themselves, as when she describes cutting class and hiding in the huge organ pipes with potato chips and "Spiderman" comics. Her serious intent about her music is what will stay with readers in the end, as well as the way in which she embraces life and makes all experience a part of her music. This is an inspirational book in the finest sense--a real find for those librarians who struggle always to produce a readable choice for the perennial autobiography assignment. --Connie C.

Store Description

Hi, Folks ... Mom said, 'I need to downsize'. Moving to assisted living, what she couldn't take included 8,000-plus books & records. A decade later, my upcountry barn is bursting. Books multiply as others recycle priorities. I now have 30,000 or more books (not yet all online) looking for good homes, and my learning curve has been a roller coaster. I celebrate word-crafters, thought-tumblers, laughter ... the arts of communication at every turn. I preserve, protect, and share. I am also Hedgehog Publishing, 'Words & Pictures by & for Folks with Prickly Backs, Soft Bellies, & Small Brains'.
