\nHe played piano mostly. other than that I don't know. I'm trying to figure it out myself : ]
Write music and play the piano. He painted a little in his free time.
His parents were Russian immigrants that came to America. George grew up in Brooklyn, but moved to Hollywood and lived there for 5 years or so. He died in 1937 when he was onl…y 38 of a brain tumor, but is remembered for creating a new style of music for America in a time when only European composers were taken seriously. But George combined several existing styles from around the world to create his melting pot of American music. He's an amazing guy!
when he was 11. His family purchased a second hand piano and it wasthen that he started looking for a mentor to teach him the craft.In 4 short years he was playing professiona…lly.
\nCan't imagine that he would have, being Jewish during that time of history.

Ray Henderson wrote life is just a bowl of cherries. :)
"Life is just a bowl of cherries" is a popular idiom that at one point was made into a song. It simply means that life is good and everything is going great!
In the movie starring Alan Alda's father, Robert Alda, we're shown the young George fitting his fingers to the depressed keys on a player piano. While there may be some truth …in that, the reality is he had real piano teachers and a lot of native talent.
While there may have been an earlier usage, the first time this expression became popular was back in 1931, when it was the title of a hit song, and was also in a Broadway mus…ical. The meaning is that life is sweet and delightful, especially when you are in love.
