Note to You, A; Gifted Amateurs

10/03/1999

After a hard day at the office, some of us head for the gym. Others might sit down in front of the TV. There are a few people for whom listening to music is the ultimate relaxation. But some music-lovers do more than just listen: they sit down and play! Virginia Eskin visits with professionals in law and medicine who take their music very seriously indeed.
