TAKE A BOW is the extraordinary life story of 
Ingrid Clarfield, a remarkable music educator and highly respected Professor of Piano at Westminster Choir College at Rider University in Princeton, New Jersey. Ingrid has traveled the country giving hundreds of workshops and lectures, inspiring thousands of music students and teachers from coast to coast. 

On March 29 2007, after returning from the Music Teacher National Association conference in Toronto, Ingrid was stuck down by a devastating stroke that paralyzed the left side of her body. This should have been the end of her career. But, it wasn't. The film depicts how Ingrid's love for piano, passion for teaching and dedication to her students allowed her to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds.


The film takes an intimate look into Ingrid's childhood; her musical gifts; and the support of her family, colleagues, and students. TAKE A BOW inspires with its insight into Ingrid's struggle and the sheer determination it took for her to become a champion in the end.
