Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912) was a British classical composer who is best known for his composition Hiawatha's Wedding Feast.
Coleridge-Taylor's father was African and his mother British. He was first trained as a violin student with a local musician in England, which led to his enrolment in the Royal College of Music in 1890. Instead of continuing his studies in violin, however, Coleridge-Taylor focused on composition, in which subject he was mentored by Charles Villiers Stanford.
