Beethoven's Birthday Month!
While we don't know the exact date of Beethoven's birth (only his Baptism was documented), scholars accept December 16th, 1770 as his birthday. After learning lots of facts about Beethoven, we talked about the role of classical music in TV and movies. The creator of "Charlie Brown" truly loved Beethoven - and created a character (Schroder) that constantly plays Beethoven's music on his piano. Below is a clip from "Charlie Brown" where Schroder plays various music by Beethoven.
