Composer @ a Glance — Bach



During the Covid 19 Stay-at-Home crisis I’ve been creating a lot of content for my Music students. I’ve been developing games, like Composer Battleship. Not only do the kids get to play Battleship, but they get to learn about a set of musical greats. I do a bio for each composer… which I thought I’d share on this blog.  Why not start with a biggie… Bach? Ahhh Bach.
