Itzhak Perlman is many things including; a famous violinist, an inspiring teacher, and an advocate for disabled people. When he was around four years old, he decided he wanted to play the violin. It was around that time that he contracted polio. His second teacher (Rivka Goldgart) had heard of the diagnosis, and was initially reluctant to teach a disabled child, but met with him anyway. “Actually, the disability did not play any part… The only difference when you study the violin is you stand up when you play. I would say 90% (of the violinists in the world) or even more sit down when they play… So in my case, that was it. I was not playing with my feet, I was playing with my hands.”
