This month, Classics for Kids features Georg Philipp Telemann.

This week's show is Self-Taught Composers.
Georg Philipp Telemann never studied composition — he taught himself how to write music. There are quite a few composers who taught themselves, including Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Edward Elgar, Francis Poulenc, Scott Joplin and others.

Classics for Kids is sponsored by The Charles H. Dater Foundation
