 [QUIZ THEME] 


>> RACHEL: Here’s the question. Which classical musician wrote this song? 


[EINE KLEINE NACHTMUSIK BEGINS] 


>> RACHEL: Was it: 


Beethoven 


Mozart 


Or Chopin? 


To figure it out, let’s learn more about musical maestros. 


[EINE KLEINE NACHTMUSIK ENDS] 


>> RACHEL: But first, switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -and brush the molars in the way back. First up: Beethoven.


[CLASSICAL MUSIC BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: Ludwig Van Beethoven was a composer. Composers are people who write music, and Beethoven was a VERY busy composer. One of the coolest things about him was that he wrote music even though he was deaf.  That means he wrote music without being able to hear it! 

 

So, did Beethoven write our mystery music, or was it Mozart? 


[CLASSICAL MUSIC ENDS]


>> RACHEL: Switch to the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL:  -and keep on brushing.


[CLASSICAL MUSIC BEGINS] 


>> RACHEL: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was what’s called a musical child prodigy, which basically means he was a super talented kid! Mozart started writing music when he was just 5 years old! 


[CLASSICAL MUSIC ENDS]


>>KID: WOW!


>> RACHEL: So was our mystery music written by Mozart, or was it Chopin? 


[CLASSICAL MUSIC BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: Frederic Francois Chopin was also a musical child prodigy. He wrote one of his most famous pieces when he was 7 years old!


Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -and spit if you need to.


So now that we know a little more about these classical composers, it’s time to make a guess.
