* BillingDisplacement: Gloria Estefan appears in the film much less than the credits, filmposter or publicity suggested.



* DoingItForTheArt: Meryl Streep had to learn how to look convincingly like she was an expert violinist - and it's pretty darn good.



* HeAlsoDid: Hard to believe this is from the same director as ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984''.



* PlayingAgainstType: The director (see HeAlsoDid), with his only non-thriller to date (also Craven's only PG-rated movie).



* TheOtherMarty: ''Madonna'' was attached to the film to play Roberta, and had taken violin lessons for several months, before leaving the film citing "creative differences" with director Craven. Of course, we got '''Meryl Streep''' instead.

to:

* AbusiveParents: One of Roberta's best students [[spoiler: has to give up a shot at Julliard and move away]] because her father had been committing domestic abuse.



**One boy in the first half of the film believes that Roberta is cool ''because'' [[GoodIsNotNice she is not as classically nice as some of his other teachers.]] Gradually, the students come to respect Roberta's toughness and find some of her outbursts funny.



* InnerCitySchool: the setting for the whole film.

* InnerCitySchool: the setting for the whole film.film.
* InspirationallyDisadvantaged: One of Roberta's first students, a little girl named Guadalupe who is shown wearing leg braces. Her entire purpose in the film is to show Roberta that quitting something just because it's hard is a cop-out. She's also there to showcase Roberta's gentler side.


Added DiffLines:

**It should be noted Roberta herself denies this, which [[spoiler: results in a change of heart for one skeptical parent.]] However, she does tend to cross into this category regardless.

'''''Music of the Heart''''' is a 1999 dramatic/{{biopic}} film, directed by Creator/WesCraven and starring MerylStreep. The film is based on the documentary ''Small Wonders'', which chronicled the evolution of a violin program conducted for inner-city kids in Harlem. The woman who started this program is Roberta Guaspari, a renowned music educator who decided to start the program as she felt any child could learn to play the violin, and that it would be a good form of expression for the children who were growing up in a tough, tough neighbourhood. The events of the film lead up to a concert at Carnegie Hall, together with famous violinists who had volunteered to help. The film is notable for having most of the same violinists recreate that concert for the movie.
