All About Mozart
Mozart was very talented when it came to music. Since he started learning music at such a young age he never learned anything else. He came to a point when the only thing he was ever taught and ever knew was music. His dad always pushed him to be the best at music and he was, but since he had no other knowledge he did not know how to spend money and that is how he got poor even after being rich.
