He began studying music when quite young and started teaching singing schools in 1883. He attended a normal taught by Rufus Cornelius in 1900; the Eureka Normal, Enterprise, Indian Territory (now Oklahoma); and three sessions of Anthony Showalter’s Southern Normal Music Institute: Alvord, Texas, 1902; Stephenville, Texas, 1901; and Thorsby, Alabama, 1903.
