Synopses & Reviews
Readers will learn that at the age of seven, Schubert already knew as much about music as his teacher, and that he was part of a string quartet with his father and two brothers. Children who sing, play music with other people, or who write down or draw the sounds they hear in their heads will love reading about Schubert and listening to his music.

“. . .The book is an excellent way to introduce children to classical music... a great addition for the piano studio and homeschool library.” —LadyD Books
