I think Leonard Bernstein is worthy of study because it is interesting to know how a person is life was back then. For example, he played the piano. I wonder what pianos looked back then. I think it is cool to know how did he get inspired to make him play the piano and how he started to get better at it. I really think that his songs are really good and they make the people feel alive and makes them hyper. Also I think his band has kept the beat and was really good and I can tell by hearing his band preform I can tell that they practiced for a long time. He is one of the best composers that I have heard. He died on october 14 1990.
