Mozart was affected by his family. His father Leopold Mozart was a violinist and composer. Leopold Mozart taught Wolfgang Mozart and her sister Maria Anna(called Nannerl) music and instruments. When Mozart was young, he was fascinated to listen to Maria Anna play the harpsichord. He would pretend to play the harpsichord after his sister was done playing. When Wolfgang Mozart actually tried playing the harpsichord for real, Leopold Mozart was shocked. Mozart had played without anybody’s help and just listening to Maria Anna play. He was playing every note perfectly, and could play any song just after hearing it once. By the age of 4, he started composing his own music all by himself! The story about this amazing child bagan spreading all around. When he was still a small child, he started traveling all around Europe to perform with his sister. Italy had showed Mozart opera, which was where Mozart got the idea of composing it. The music was a total success. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart knew when to have a surprise, which instruments should this part play, and everything that music have to have. After Mozart grew up, he still composed and performed but Maria Anna had to stop for a reason. When Mozart grew up, he married a singer named Constanze Weber. He got ideas from his wife too.
