Schmoll

1988 CF3. Discovered 1988 Feb. 11 by E. W. Elst at La Silla.

Named for the German piano teacher Antoine Schmoll, who at the age of seven received his first piano lessons and tuition in the art of composing. He left his native country to become a piano teacher, first in Toulouse (1864), later in Brussels (1873) and Paris (1875). In 1881 he published his famous Nouvelle méthode de piano, théorique, pratique et récréative (with 16 editions in less than 14 years), in which the difficulty of the lessons increases gradually.
