Good morning, Kids Commuters, and Happy Monday! Welcome to a whole new week on IPR's Kids Commute.

This week, we'll be learning about the family of legendary Baroque period composer Johann Sebastian Bach. (Learn more about JS Bach and the Baroque period here.) JS Bach had twenty children, and a few of them became well-known composers in their own right.

Today, we're starting with Dear Old Dad - JS Bach himself.
