Pierre-Alexandre Monsigny (10/17/1729 - 1/14/1817)

Pierre-Alexandre Monsigny was born in Fauquembergues, a small town in the Pas-de-Calais between Saint-Omer and Montreuil, on 17th October, 1729. He was the first born of seven children of Nicolas Monsigny and Marie-Antoinette Dufresne. He studied at the Jesuit college of Saint-Omer where one of the Jesuits, Father Mollien, taught him how to play the violin. In 1748 the death of Monsigny’s father forced him to find a position to help his widowed mother and his siblings. He went to Paris and, in 1749, entered the service of Mr de Saint-Julien, the receiver general of the French Clergy. However, he pursued his musical studies with Pietro Gianotti, a double-bass player of the Paris Opéra, student of Jean-Philippe Rameau and author of a Guide du compositeur published in 1759.
