Teaching the Life of Music

Music has been called the universal language. Now, it's tranforming the lives of low income children. Naiomi Weis is the writer and producer of Teaching the Life of Music. It's new documentary that examines the impact of an international movement called El Sistema and how it teaches children to do more than read music notes.
