He studied at the Royal academy of Esslingen, Germany, during 1829-'31, and began the study of the violin, but relinquished that instrument for the organ. In 1840 he went to St. Petersburg, and in 1847 came to the United States. He held various posts as organist, notably in Plymouth church, Brooklyn, where he was almost uninterruptedly from 1850 till 1865. In 1865 he went to Europe, remaining two years. After his return he resumed his duties at Plymouth church, but in 1878 went again to Europe. He composed a large number of pieces for the organ, as well as some sacred and vocal music, and published "Modern Organ-School " (Boston, 1860)" "The Amateur Organist " (1854)" a " Treatise on Harmony and Modulation"" and other books.
