Influences: 1. Ludwig van Beethoven Beethoven is not an influence for me because I listen to his music. Beethoven. Its because Beethoven took a whole new approach to composing music Structure and refinement gave way to emotion, and the inner world of the artist. Most music of the earlier Classical era relied heavily on what we call 'form,' or a kind of musical structure 2. Johann Bach Just like Beethoven, I dont really listen to his music that often although I like the way he enriched established German styles through his skill in counterpoint, harmonic and motivic organization, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms, and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France. These are my influences because I like people who change up and innovate music instead of doing the same thing.
