Cole Porter: A Musical Genius
Born in Indiana to a wealthy family, Cole Porter began to take interest in music during his early years thanks to his mother who helped in his musical training. He learned the violin at the age of six and later got skilful at playing the piano before Porter penned his first operetta at the age of ten. In 1905, he was enrolled in Worcester Academy and became class valedictorian. He then attended Yale College where his musical talents were uncovered, leading him to be elected as the president of the Yale Glee Club.
Cole Porter soon began to compose musical comedy scores for The Yale Dramatic Association which helped him prepare for a career as a Hollywood and Broadway composer and lyricist. After his graduation from Yale, he entered Harvard Law School in 1913 but felt that he is not meant to be a lawyer and later switched to Harvard's music department and started to study counterpoint and harmony with Pierto Yon. In 1915, Porter wrote a song, Esmeralda which became his first track to appear on a Broadway revue, 'Hands Up.'
