Reviews

“Good will, determination, and a sense of community made possible Zin! Zin! Zin! a Violin, which offers children an introduction to music, instruments, and a variety of musical playing styles. It perfectly adapts a well-loved children’s book all the way up to a superb level in which the cinematic narrative features both cartoons and actual human beings. Narrated by Angela Lansbury and featuring masters musicians Marvin Hamlisch and Wycliffe Gordon, it maintains the very same standards that have resulted in children the world over being offered learning vehicles in the most respectful, inspiring, and charming ways possible.”

— STANLEY CROUCH

“A perfect symphony of musical introductions, its composition and content will surely inspire!”
