Oh, that darn Frederic Pipin! He’ll do anything to get out of learning how to play an instrument, much to the chagrin of his loving parents who named him after the great Chopin. One day however, the little fellow falls under the spell of an amazing conductor and owns up to his name by spinning some magic and writing a fabulous song!
