Mozart, at a young age, learnt to play the piano at the age of four and started touring with his sister at age six.
His fast progress may seem surprising. However, from the first moment, Mozart was born. He was surrounded by music constantly. Also, to win his father’s affection, he wanted to become great at piano. His father who was a music instructor supervised all his practises.
After ten years of hard work and dedication, Mozart started to produce some real masterpieces. Although he was still young, he had put in the amount of effort required to get to that level of mastery.
