Life Of Beethoven

Beethoven was born in Bonn Germany in 1770 on December 17th. He had 7 siblings and his dad grew up teaching music. When his dad found out that he had a special talent in music his dad immediately started to develop his skills but the only reason he did it was he wanted to make money of Beethoven's talent. In 1787 when Ludwig was 17 he moved to Vienna which became his home. Through part of his life Beethoven was actually deaf. He couldn't here so he put a piano on the ground and felt vibrations of the notes he played. Later on his life Beethoven adopted his nephew who attempted suicide to get away from his terrible family. He had to take a break from his huge passion of music to adopt him. Beethoven grew up with a bad temper and kept it his entire life. He would play music 24/7 skipping meals and showers consistently.
