Wonderfully simple and light-hearted biographies, perfect for children, teach lessons thru the composer's life and how they reacted to their circumstances and childhood. This is to depict that the great composers were 'human' and suffered hard times, but overcame their difficulties to become the best they could be. The majority of the pieces are written for the piano and violin and transcribed to let the cellists have fun too. Second cello parts are written to be interesting and stimulating both rhythmically and melodically; all typeset in a larger font appealing to children.
