From the Paper:

"Handel was sent as a boy to Friedrich Zachow, an organist and composer at Halle, for three years of training. He then studied law at the University of Halle but later in 1703 joined the opera orchestra at Hamburg, learning and playing while supporting himself by teaching organ lessons to others. It was here that his first two operas, Almira and Nero were written and produced. His life was challenging, as he suffered at least two known strokes and the development of cataracts, which eventually resulted in complete blindness despite a rather painful and rudimentary surgery, yet despite this he continued to write and support the music world up to the day he died.
