1. Write about your favorite composer's life. This section should include at least 3 things that they were known for
My favorite composer that I loved the most in the set list was Frederic Chopin.

Although he was highly influential, his music did not always bring in large crowds, like other composers did. In October 17, 1849, the great pianist and composer Frederic Chopin would die in Paris, France.
