Mozart’s father, “a violinist at the court of the prince of Salzburg,” taught him how to play the clavier and encouraged him in his art (“Wolfgang” World History). His parents had seven children, although only two of them, Mozart and his sister Maria Anna Mozart, survived to adulthood. Mozart first showed off his innate abilities in music at age four, when “he began playing his pieces from his elder sister’s clavier lessons” and astonished his entire family (“Wolfgang” World History). After his father heard him play such arduous pieces, he started giving him lessons. Mozart’s sister was also a talented musician.
It was with his brother that he was formally introduced to a keyboard, although it is believed that he already had a versatile knowledge of music at that point. (JSBach.org) When Bach was 15 he left his older brother to go to St. Michael’s School and sang in the choir to support himself. In 1706, while still attending school, Bach married his first wife and they would end up having 7 children. Three of their children passed away and the other four grew up and two
Then, I will discuss how he was able to establish significant connections with important entrepreneurs until he became a successful entrepreneur himself. I will demonstrate how this positively affected his fame and career in musical theatre. Furthermore, I will give an overview about his unique songwriting methods and music styles. I will also discuss in some detail two of his well-known patriotic songs, “White Christmas” and “God Bless America” that have had a substantial influence on the American culture and the history of musical theatre. Israel Isidore Baline was born on May 11, 1888 in Russia.
He was 17 when he joined Boyzone, having answered an advertisement placed by local entrepreneur Louis Walsh. The fast-talking Walsh had observed the huge success of Take That (an outfit itself modelled on American boyband New Kids On the Block) and was seized with the urge to launch an Irish equivalent. After auditioning 300 hopeful applicants, including future Hollywood star Colin Farrell, Walsh settled on a prototype six-piece line-up. Only a day after their formation, the group were hastily shoved in front of the cameras on RTÉ's The Late Late Show, dancing to a pre-recorded backing track, in a performance that later on brought blushes to the participants' faces. After some reshuffling, Boyzone settled into a stable five-piece format, featuring Gately alongside Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch, Mikey Graham and Keith Duffy.

Radio exposure brought him to the attention of bandleader Harry James, with whom Sinatra made his first recordings, including "All or Nothing at All." In 1940, Sinatra joined Tommy Dorsey’s band. After two years of chart-topping success with Dorsey, Sinatra decided to strike out on his own (Frank Sinatra: the Boudoir Singer, 2011). In the 1940s Sinatra embarked on a solo career and became the idol of “bobby-soxers,” teenage girls who swooned over his crooning, soft-voiced singing. He appeared in such film musicals as Anchors Aweigh (1945), Till the Clouds Roll By (1947), and On the Town (1949).
A court musician is an individual that plays for hire. Court musicians usually shared their abilities off during banquets, weddings, and other events. Mozart was among one of the most versatile composers of his time. During his early travels, “he became a master of opera undermining other musicians with his supreme abilities to coordinate music and stage routines” (Music 179). “From 1762 to 1791, Mozart traveled to other countries and nations such as London, Berlin, Munich, and

Because crowds were sometimes drunk and rowdy, Kulthum's father took the precaution to dress her as a boy. By 1917, the family began to consider a serious singing career for Umm Kulthum and in about 1922 they moved to Cairo to launch her in the commercial music business. Umm was not an immediate
