Frederic Chopin was a Polish composer.
Chopin was first taught piano by his sister. He swiftly outgrew these lessons, however, and began to study privately under various musicians throughout Warsaw. It became clear that Chopin was a prodigy. Before long his skills were being recommended to wealthy patrons. This allowed him to perform works of the masters while beginning to explore his own compositions.
He quickly outgrew Warsaw and moved to Paris. There he worked as an elite piano teacher, and continued composing his pieces. His success was slow but assured: he is known for his expressive and emotive piano compositions with appealing melodies that require considerable skill to perform.
The majority of Chopin’s works are composed for solo piano. He did, however, create piano concertos, and chamber pieces as well.
