Paul Marie Theodore Vincent d-Indy (1851-1931) was born in Paris into an aristocratic family of royalist and Catholic persuasion. On the advice of Henri Duparc, he became a devoted student of Cesar Franck at the Conservatoire de Paris. As a follower of Franck, d-Indy came to admire what he considered the standards of German symphonism. Inspired by his own studies with Franck and dissatisfied with the standard of teaching at the Conservatoire de Paris, d-Indy, together with Charles Bordes and Alexandre Guilmant, founded the Schola Cantorum de Paris in 1894. D-Indy taught there and later at the Paris Conservatoire until his death. Among his many pupils were Isaac Albeniz, Leo Arnaud, Joseph Canteloube (who later wrote d-Indy's biography), Pierre Capdevielle, Arthur Honegger, Eugene Lapierre, Alberic Magnard, Rodolphe Mathieu, Darius Milhaud, Cole Porter, Albert Roussel, Erik Satie, and Georges-emile Tanguay.
