My mother’s side also had a musical line. Aside from her guitar playing (which she learned by watching Folk Guitar on PBS), her uncle, Morris Schwartz, was a musician. I was told he played saxophone in Benny Goodman’s orchestra, but have not been able to confirm that either.
My musical ability (despite the piano lessons and a couple of years of viola in elementary school) is more in line with my Dad’s. Though nowadays we call it a stereo.
