Bach was born into a family of many musicians—composers, singers, and instrumentalists. At the age of 12, he could play the harpsichord, the organ, the violin, and the viola. Children who are curious about how musical instruments are crafted, and who may have wondered how pieces of wood is needed to make a violin, will find that they may have much in common with Bach.
