As Clara grew older into her high school years and early adult years, she attended school which helped her grow in her music career as well. She attended Leipzig University and studied music and composition. They thought that she was fantastic and playing the piano and that she was going to go far with her career. She got top marks in her class and people were looking up to her and going to her for assistance. This furthered her knowledge and compassion for music, which improved and inspired her to continue. It did not last long that she attended school, because she wanted to pursue her music career sooner than later and she found that it was difficult doing school and creating music at the same time. Clara had started to travel for tours to perform with her husband. She started in her country, but then reached out to Europe and further. Her husband, had caught an illness which had rattled her work. Later on in that year, Clara had been introduced to a violinist named Joseph Joachim, and they started to perform together. She had helped improve the techniques of playing the piano as well. Overall, Clara Schumann had a lot of support within pursuing her career as a successful pianist. Clara had a sense of determination and said that nothing would step in the way of getting in between the piano and her hands. Throughout Clara’s years of learning music and performing, she had earned and won awards and have accomplished many things over all of those years! By the time Clara was eighteen, she was well known to different pianists and composers around Asia and Europe. During her performances, she had won the highest musical honours for musicians award, which was also called The Royal and Imperial Chamber Virtuoso. She accomplished completing her dream of a pianist because even though she had eight children, she still managed to complete what she loved to do and it never interfered. In her later years, Clara became a piano teacher, which she did for fourteen years. Even though Clara is not the most famous pianist in the world, she was one of the best pianists in the romantic period and one of the best female pianists to contribute to the development of music. She was fantastic at performing her own song that she created, but she was also intelligent with interpreting and performing pieces done by other artists. Audiences and other pianists were shocked at how she could perform other pieces with such little practice. They all called her a natural and that it was her purpose for her to be in this world. For her to influence others to chase their dreams and never give up no matter what gets in the way. Clara influenced many individuals and already successful artists.
