Studies showed that a child will inherit his or her parents’ gene and it may be possible for a musically educated parent to pass on his or her musical gene to the child. One example is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). He was known as a child prodigy and started performing around major capitals of Europe as young as six years old. His father, Leopold Mozart, was a highly regarded violin teacher of that period and taught little Mozart how to compose and play keyboard at the tender age of four, which resulted in him having the ability to write big works and play many musical instruments proficiently by the age of twelve. He also had an exceptional hearing and memory that he notated almost an entire choral piece after hearing it once during his visit to Rome.
She “... practised every day for Tante Rose” (Horton, 2). Anyone with a hobby or job that they perform on the daily can speak to the devotion it requires to not get burnt out or uninspired. Practising every day implies that Hannah is diligent, and the fact that she did it for Tante Rose further proves her devotion, both to her future career and her aunt. In fact, Hannah moves in with her aunt in order to “... devote all [her] free time to [her] studies in piano” (2). Her devotion to piano outweighed her willingness to stay with her family, a quality that few possess.

The mirror with my mother’s eyes,”(194.). To Billie Jo, a piano symbolized her mother and everything her mother was to her, but she rebuilt herself and continued to play and by the end of the novel Billie Jo is playing at home once again. After running away Billie Jo also realized how much her father still meant to her. Despite all the pain he has caused her, she reconnects with him and together they rebuild their relationship into one where they both know they still love and care for the other. For example, when Billie Jo returns she thinks, “as we walk together, side by side, in the swell of dust, I am forgiving him, step by step, for the pail of kerosene.
Her father taught her Greek, Latin, French, German, Italian, history, philosophy and mathematics, being his favorite subject. And soon liker her father Florence developed a passion for mathematics.

Therefore, Haydn left his home and embarked on a journey to musical training. Although the opportunity allowed rare visits to his parents—as Haydn dedicated most of his time to becoming a better musician—his parents were supportive of his journey. In Hainburg, Haydn learned how to play many instruments, including the violin and the drums. He also received voice training lessons. It was in Hainburg that Haydn was discovered for his voice and entered the Cathedral of St. Stephen in Vienna as a choirboy at the age of eight.
Franz Joseph Haydn was a German composer whose life story is one of trials and triumphs. As Philip G. Downs states, Haydn was born “the oldest son of the twenty children from his father’s two marriages” (199). Obviously, he and his family faced severe poverty. In spite of that, at a very early age Haydn’s musical gifts were noticeable. “Not only was he a gifted instrumentalist and composer, he also had a fantastic singing voice” (145).
Just as in any concert, performers would invite their families to attend and enjoy our hard work. For this particular song, we were able to get out of the stands and walk around the entire auditorium while singing in harmony to entertain our families. To my recollection, there were a lot of laughs and even though my mom, a non-English speaker, could not understand what the song says, she enjoyed the performance and the song itself a lot too. I remember her trying her best to playfully sing the song to me after we got home because that’s how much she loved it and she said it was very catchy. Now that I know more about music and its
Paul 's mother Hester can be described as bitter at best. She was a pretty woman but that was as far as her beauty went. She did not really love her three children, but felt the need to keep up a sick facade of being a good rich mother. She lived a double life and valued keeping up her social position so much so that she felt the need to have servants despite not having the finances to do so. She also irritably claimed that the reason they had no money was because the kids ' father and her husband was an unlucky man.
During the nineteenth century, it was not considered normal for a woman to be in control of finances. I think Torvald knew his wife was capable and that he trusted her. Torvald also showed his love by spending time with Nora to teach her to dance the tarantella. He did this because he thought it was good for her to do it, and he thought that she enjoyed it. “Now, now, the little lark’s wings mustn’t droop.
