Beethoven's Legacy!!

Beethoven was a great composer (but not as good as Mozart☺). He had many childhood problems. He was put with great responsibility when he was very young because of his father. He was very short-tempered because he was scared of losing his hearing. He was dedicated into making music, so he actually wrote music for weeks without changing his clothes.
