American composer and teacher George Whitefield Chadwick (1854-1931) studied in Germany, then returned home to become director of the New England Conservatory. Part of the "New England School," his music also shows signs of French influences. His didactic abilities were as great as his compositional skills--and he wrote quality music in a variety of genres.
