ALOIS FRANCIS LEJEAL, one of the best known and most accomplished musicians on the pacific coast, was born in Alsace, France, in 1840 and was reared and educated in his native country. His uncle, Ignatz Garner, who was prominent in the musical profession, gave him his first instructions, which he continued under Ig. Trueg, and studied counter point with M. E. Sachs. Upon completing his musical course Mr. Lejeal came to New York, and later founded the New York Conservatory of Music, in conjunction with the well-known violin virtuoso, Edward Mollenhauer, and S. N. Griswold, in 1867. In the following year Mr. Lejeal assumed the sole musical direction of the conservatory, then numbering about 1,500 students. He taught the advanced classes on the piano, and also took an active part as pianist in the concerts of the conservatory, given under his directions. On account of ill health, resulting from over-work, he came to the land of golden promise, and in 1875 became a resident of San Francisco, and since then, for the past sixteen years, he has been successfully engaged in giving instructions in piano and harmony. Professor Lejeal has done much in composition and as musical author, and among his works the Modern School of Piano Technics is deserving of special mention. It comprises over 150 quarto pages, and is well calculated to prepare the hands of all requirements of modern virtuosity. Chromatic progression through all the keys is a predominent feature of the work, and all the triads and chords of the sevenths with their resulting arpeggios are treated in an exhaustive manner. Among his piano solos are Atalanta Fantaisie, Minuet de la Princesse, Twilight Reverie, a suite in five numbers for piano and violin, etc. Among his vocal compositions are four Masses, a Requiem, Vespers, Episcopal morning and evening services, Te Deums, duets, etc.

Professor Lejeal has had a long and successful experience in teaching and enjoys an enviable reputation in the profession in New York, Boston, Philadelphia and other Eastern cities, and with the most eminent musicians of the musical centers of Europe. He takes yearly vacation visits in New York, Boston, Philadelphia and other Eastern cities. Professor Lejeal has an elegant and attractive home on Clay street in this city.
