English comments:
While Granados is known universally as a composer and pianist, it is often forgotten that he was also a highly esteemed teacher. He took his pedagogic responsibilities very seriously and consequently devoted a considerable part of his life to his students. In 1901 Granados founded the Academia Granados. His goal was to develop it into an important educational institution, and thus he insisted on incorporating the latest methods of musical education into the curriculum, which included classes in piano, violin, chamber music, solfege, music history, theory, harmony and composition. In addition, with a view to educating the audience of the future, Granados organised numerous concerts and lectures. Granados served as Director of the Academia Granados. The first Assistant Director was Domingo Mas i Serracant (1866-1944), a position that was taken later by Granados' leading disciple, Frank Marshall (1883-1957). After Granados' death Marshall took over the directorship of the Academia and changed the name to the present one-Academia Marshall. The current Director is Alicia de Larrocha.

Comentarios del Espanol:
Granados es conocido como compositor y pianista, pero se suele olvidar que tambien fue un pedagogo de prestigio que asumio con esmerada entrega sus responsabilidades como profesor y que consagro, por lo tanto, una parte considerable de su vida a sus alumnos. Fundo en 1901 un centro pedagogico, la Academia Granados, con el proposito de convertirlo en una importante institucion educativa, para lo cual no dudo en incorporar en el programa de estudios los ultimos metodos de educacion musical. En ella se impartian cursos regulares de piano, violin, musica de camara, solfeo, historia de la musica, teoria, armonia y composicion. Ademas, con el fin de contribuir a formar al publico del futuro, se organizaban numerosos ciclos de conciertos y conferencias. Ejercio de director de la Academia y tuvo como primer subdirector a Domenec Mas i Serracant (1866-1944), cargo que mas adelante fue ocupado por su discipulo predilecto, Frank Marshall (1883-1957), quien se responsabilizo de la Academia despues de la muerte del fundador y le cambio el nombre por el de Academia Marshall, cuya directora es en la actualidad Alicia de Larrocha.
