Tchaikovskiy's life

Tchaikovskiy was born in Votkinsk Russia and was in a 7 member family. Tchaikovskiy had a very difficult life and childhood. He was "rejected" several times. At the age of just 10 years old he went of to boarding school with no family. His parents new his music talent needed to be developed so they left him at the school. Tchaikovsky was a very warm hearted child one day he went missing but what happened was he was going door to door trying to find a home for the last kitten in a litter born family. We don't know much about Tchaikovsky adulthood but we know plenty about his music. but sadly in 1893 Tchaikovsky's life came to an end. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ have a nice one
