Virtuoso

"I love this film!
Virtuoso follows the journey of a senior citizen Matty Kahn, who is eighty nine-years-old and has no prior music experience, beginning to learn to play the cello and the fundamentals of music for the first time.
Matty Kahn is a joy to watch and her story is punctuated by experts in the geriatric and music therapy field and an amateur cellist, reiterating the benefits that the film so clearly embodies: keeping the mind active, maintaining physical dexterity, and giving people a reason to look forward to life.
This inspirational documentary challenges viewers to rethink ideas about age, learning, and discovering passion throughout life. The dialogue and script could have been written from our MFP Philosophy in which we have been encouraging people to awaken their interest in music and find a loving and humanistic teacher, which Biana definitely is.
The teaching scenes are real and wonderfully to watch, full of encouragement from Biana. The overdubbed dialogue is inspirational in a sense that the concepts are very real and practical as well as detailed.
The entire film has the wonderful cello background performance of Biana Kovic.
Ms. Kovic skillfully bring to light the importance of the following concepts that are so true for both, learning and life: passion, process, practice, patience and praiseā€¦..sure sounds like our Music For People.
Congratulations to Biana Kovic and her production associates on this heart-warming film."
- David Darling, Music For People Founder and Artistic Director.

"This short, brilliant film packs more inspirational punch than many full-length features. Kovic's theme of renewal and discovery through music is handled with subtlety and skill. When it was over the first thing I wanted to do was pick up a cello."

- Larry Hott, Florentine Films/Hott Productions.
