The Violin Takes Care of Me

Iris Unum Andal Danek has been studying violin at the Colburn School in Los Angeles since she was four years old. Now, at 9, she says, "If I could have one thing in the world with me at all times, it would be my violin because the violin takes care of me." We hear her "Violin Ensemble" class as well as part of a private lesson, both taught by "Mr. McLean", who Iris says is "super fun."
