Working with a violinist: An account of a lesson by David Gorman

It took its public school seriously, and the public schools took their music programs seriously. They provided lessons; they provided instruments. Schoenbaum went on to specialize in history, most famously writing the 1966 book, Hitler's Social Revolution and working as a Professor of History at the University of Iowa until his retirement in 2008. He continues to play the violin as an amateur. His history of the violin was a 20-year labor of love.
