Basket of Beethoven
When Sam hears Helen play the piano, he is entranced. He wants Helen to teach him to play, but knows that his mother cannot afford lessons. It isn't until Helen's haughty manner atracts the attention of the class bullies that Sam comes up with an offer she'll have no choice but to accept. And the two strike a bargain that will change both their lives forever.
