    Dear Ali:
    Don't worry. Playing a stringed instrument can be the best thing in the world for a child's social integration. Music was a guardian Angel when I was a child which protected me from many of the perils of youth. Children learn to make better social judgement when they are surrounded by a community of peers who are studying music. Music is a technical skill that simultaneously develops the emotional intellect of a child.
    Otherwise wonderful interview. I would like to know more about how the El Sistema contributes $1.68 to the economy of Venezuela. Do you have any sources.?
