He was educated by Vogt at the Paris Conservatory, where he took first oboe prize in 1829, and besides playing at the Theatre des Italiens and the Societe des Concerts composed many pieces for his instruments and made some excellent arrangements and adaptations. In 1863 he succeeded Verroust as professor of oboe at the Conservatory, a position which he retained until his death, four years later.
