Celebrating Mozart

Author: Dana Matthews

We had so much fun celebrating Mozart’s birthday in fantastic style! One of our Jump! parents is an accomplished pianist and amazing piano teacher! To celebrate Mozart’s 261st birthday she came to the school to showcase Mozart’s talent. The students were mesmerized with her playing ability and were astonished to find out that Mozart created his first composition at age five!

It was so cute to see all the students get excited about classical music! Our Kindergartners and First Graders were inspired and now want to compose their own music. Who knows, this event might encourage our next great pianist, violinist and/or composer!

Watch this video for a child friendly version of Mozart’s life, courtesy of Free School; this may inspire your child to compose or play classical piano and/or violin!
