The musicians of the New York Philharmonic were kids once too!

How does a kid who just wants to play baseball make the transition to creating beautiful music?

Musicians from many different sections of the New York Philharmonic share how they became involved in music as kids and how their careers have progressed since then. They also have some helpful advice, such as
* break down pieces you're learning into small, reachable goals
* play it as beautifully as you can, even if it's just a scale
* make up words to go with the melody you're studying to learn it faster

With exclusive interviews, helpful hints, and a kid-friendly approach, this book is an all-access guide to the world of classical music.

Meet the Musicians is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
