You either pick a sport or play the violin.

I was very disappointed to hear Joel say this on the Parenthood episode "The Talk." Joel used "playing the violin" as a threat or punishment if his son did not pick a sport to play. It is because of comments like these on TV shows that make children think that playing the violin is not cool. As a violin performer and Suzuki violin teacher, I am constantly showing my students that the violin is a beautiful instrument and a fun part of their lives. It is a shame that the NBC writers portray the instrument in such a negative way.
