George Dudley Martin - Well Known Composers of To-day

george-dudley-martin.jpgGeorge Dudley Martin was born at Scranton, Pa., in 1881. He studied with Silas Rosser (piano) and Dr. Alfred Wooler (theory). Later he went to Philadelphia where he became the pupil of Constantine von Sternberg (piano) and Dr. Hugh A. Clark (theory). He returned to Scranton where he has since been engaged in teaching piano and theory. He developed a delightful talent for the composition of useful teaching pieces for piano. Many of his melodies have decided charm and he employs very obvious skill in treating them. His first piece was printed in The Etude in 1901 and since then he has published some fifty compostitions (sic) for the piano. The best known of these are the waltzes: “Eros,” “Little Lovers,” “Sweet Sovenir,” “Pittoresque,” and the airs de ballet: “La Ballerina,” “Coquetterie,” “Wood Nymphs,” also “To a Portrait” (song without words), “Felicitations March,” and the song, “One Day I Gathered Roses.”
