Nathaniel Ayers - With Robert Gupta and Steve Lopez

Move the clip forward, to approximately 1:34, to see Robert Gupta - at the time the youngest member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra - work with Nathaniel Ayers. 

In this scene, Nathaniel watches Robert and Joanne Pearce-Martin (principal keyboardist for the LA Phil) as they finish playing a duet.  Immediately after its conclusion, Robert gives Nathaniel tips on violin-playing technique.

Steve Lopez, Nathaniel's friend and author of a book about him, narrates this video clip from the LA Times online.
