Biography

Jean-Philippe Rameau: the bad student who preferred music

Jean-Philippe Rameau went to school at the Jesuit college at Godrans, but he was a bad pupil and disrupted classes. His parents wanted him to study law, but Rameau decided he wanted to be a musician. His father taught him music, and sent him to Italy where he stayed only three months. When he came back to France, he started his organist career, playing in Clermont-Ferrand's cathedral, in Avignon and in Lyon.
