"The old idea of a composer suddenly having a terrific idea and sitting up all night to write it is nonsense. Nighttime is for sleeping." -- Benjamin Britten


Great composers are an eclectic bunch! From J.S. Bach, who was the father of 20 children, to Beethoven, whose maids quit constantly due to his bad temper. We will learn about George Frederick Handel who had only mild success until he composed the “Hallelujah Chorus” at age 56 and Mozart, who toured Europe with his father as a child prodigy when only 6 years old. So many great men who had jobs, raised families, fought in wars, and overcame multiple challenges while composing music that would inspire people for centuries. Why did they persist in their work? What inspired them? What can we learn from them to help us pursue our dreams?
