This lesson is not only going to be different, it will be on one of the most influential musical prodigies that ever lived. Obviously you know who I'm going to talk about because of the picture and title of this tut. Here is "how to draw Mozart", step by step. I wanted to really create a simple lesson on Mozart because I know that millions of people out there enjoy his music, admire him as a composer, writer, and musician. His music will live on far beyond my days as it has before I was born. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on January 27, 1756 in Salzburg. Mozart had six siblings, but five of them died when they where just small infants. He did however have a surviving sister named Maria Anna, she was born in 1751, but later died in 1829 when she was nearly eighty years old. His father Leopold was a composer and teacher and in 1743 he became the fourth violinist of Count Leopold Anton von Firmian. His father later on down the line wrote a successful textbook called Versuch einer grundlichen Violinschule. It is basically a book on how to play the violin. Anyways, Mozart was not his father's first pupil. Instead his sister was the one to start getting lessons from their father. Instrument of choice for her was the keyboard. Some years later Mozart began his lessons but for him it was the piano. When Mozart was four years old it was evident that he was an absolute prodigy. He played the piano with such tenderness and care without a hint of mistake or fault. By the time Mozart was five years old he was already writing his own composing pieces. What's amazing is the fact that even though he was being taught by his father, Mozart's knowledge of how to play the piano was well over what his father could teach him because he simply didn't know what Mozart was teaching himself. Mozart is described as being a very small man that had pale skin and loved wearing extravagant clothes. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart died on December 5, 1791 at the young age of thirty five. Even though he is dead, he still lives on in his music. I hope you enjoy drawing Mozart, as I did creating it.
