  •  Music roots (0+ / 0-)

    My music composition professor mentioned during one lesson that I was about six generations of teaching removed from Beethoven.   He said, "I'm your teacher, my teacher was Fred, his teacher was so and so, who studied with so and so, who studied with so and so, who was a student of Beethoven".  And of course, Beethoven studied with Haydn, etc. etc. etc.

    Kind of blew my mind.
