It was not easy for Mozart to find work, so he travelled to Paris with his mother in hopes of getting a good position. At the age of 21, Mozart was struggling with the little money that he earned from teaching music to students and he barely knew how to speak French. When his mother died he soon left the city. Currently the Garnier Palace honors the musician with a bronze bust.
