Dancla, Little School of Melodie Violin Book 1 (Schott)

Charles Dancla was born in Bagnères-de-Bigorre.  Dancla was nine when the violinist Pierre Rode heard Dancla's music.  Rode was so impressed that he sent recommendation letters to Pierre Baillot, Rodolphe Kreutzer, and Luigi Cherubini. Following this, Dancla became a student at Paris conservatoires with Baillot for violin and with the opera composer Fromental Halévy for composition. He was strongly influenced by Niccolò Paganini, after hearing him in 1830, along with Henri Vieuxtemps. From 1835, Dancla was solo violinist in the Paris opera, and he became concert master soon after. In 1857, he was made a Professor at the Paris conservatoires, where he was a successfully taught for over 35 years. He died in Tunis. His two brothers were Arnaud Dancla (1819-1862), cellist and author of a cello teaching method, and Leopold Dancla (1822-1895), violinist and chamber music composer.
