Learning Guide Excerpt
To give you a sense of how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to develop lesson plans, and by parents to supplement school curriculum or for homeschooling, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to Strauss: The King of Three-Quarter Time .
Johann, Sr. left his wife and children for a mistress, spending his money on her to the detriment of his family. When it appeared that Johann, Jr. had musical talent, his mother had him secretly trained. Johann, Sr. was outraged when he discovered this and did everything he could to discourage his son's musical career. For example, when it became known that Johann, Jr. wanted to hold his first concert, the father had his manager go to each concert hall in Vienna and warn them that if they employed his son or rented their hall to the boy, the elder Strauss would never perform there again. Given Johann Strauss Sr.'s popularity, this was a threat of economic extinction. Johann, Jr., at the age of 19, was forced to hold his first concert in the suburbs at a hall to which the manager had not yet been able to deliver the father's threat. Johann, Jr. was an immediate success and the rivalry between father and son continued for many years.
