Louise Farrenc was a student of Ignaz Moscheles and Johann Nepomuk Hummel, and later studied with Anton Reicha at the Paris Conservatory.

In 1842, when she was 38 years old, Farrenc started a nearly 30-year career as Professor of Piano at the Paris Conservatory. Hers was considered one of the most prominent musical positions in all of Europe. That made her the only female professor of music to be hired in the nineteenth century at the famous Paris Conservatory.
