Chris Kim ASAM 125 Prof. Harsha October 8, 2009 The Music Lessons The Music Lessons by Wakako Yamauchi is a two act play that shows what happens to a single mother and her family when an itinerant enters their lives. He is Kaoru, a single Japanese man, who comes to the Sakata farm in Imperial Valley in California looking for a job. At first Chizuko, a hard working single mother of three rejects him claiming that she cannot pay him. Kaoru somehow gets a position by offering to work in many different ways. Chizuko’s daughter Aki who is only fifteen begins to develop feelings for Kaoru. Kaoru is a hard worker and impresses Chizuko with his relentlessness and dedication. He is also well liked by the children who find him charming and kind as he gifts him with some of the little wages he earns. He is also an amateur musician and is fluent in violin. Aki wants to learn how to play and begins receiving violin lessons from him. From the start it is sour; she is not particularly talented to the dismay of the rest of the family. Her repetition of sour notes and her inability to hit the chords is deterred by Kaoru’s patience and will to teach her his passion in life.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
