Frederic Chopin was a Polish born composer of music. Born in Poland in 1810, March 1st. Playing the piano was what the man aspired and loved to do.
Chopin's childhood was an above average lifestyles. Both of his parents were musicians. His mother taught the piano, his father was a teacher and played both the flute and violin. So music is in their blood. The link I have presented explains more of it: Scroll down to the 'Childhood' section. Chopin's Childhood
Chopin's music career started at a very young age. He began taking lessons from his mother and pro tutors. His first live performance was when he was only seven years old. Since then, his love for music grew and grew. He began to write his own music. In the next link, this is one of his works called 'Prelude': Prelude in E-Minor
FUN FACT: Frederic was actually born on February 22nd, but was later titled and changed legally to March 1st.
As a young boy, Chopin was very immune and prone to illness. He got sick a lot. And this continued throughout his life, causing his death later in life. He lived a short life, living to be only 39. If you click on this link and scroll down to 'Death', it will give you more information. Death of Chopin.
The life of Frederic Chopin and the works of his music inspired and pleased the heart of many people. Thank you for reading.

Chopin is one of my favorite composers. Waltz no. 7 in c sharp minor is up there as one of my favorite classical pieces, if not my all-time favorite. I didn't know this much about him, and this project was very informative.
