Gift of Music, A: Emile Benoit and his Fiddle
When he was a young boy, Emile Benoit dreamed of having his own fiddle.
All he had was a toy with some thread for strings. But on his twelfth birthday, he got a big surprise! His father had made a fiddle out of old violin parts. Soon he was amazing everyone by playing tunes he wrote himself. And by the time he was an adult, he had played his instrument all over the world.
