Abstract : During his long career Daniel-Lesur was professor of composition from 1935 at the Schola Cantorum, where, together with Georges Migot, Paul Le Flem and Olivier Messiaen, he led an association of chamber music concerts bearing the name Spirale. Then, appointed director of this prestigious association between 1957 and 1964, he became Principal Inspector of Music at the Ministry of Cultural Affairs in 1969. He was a member of the group Jeune France from its creation in 1936, and as such, he defended a certain conception of musical creation far from the theoretical research in vogue at the time. This chapter of the book highlights through documents, texts he produced alone or in collaboration with his friends, thanks to testimonies of former students, the pedagogical practices of Daniel-Lesur professeur in order to sketch the different approaches to his teaching and the influence he had on these students. We will not fail to compare his pedagogical approaches with those of teachers such as Messiaen or Jolivet. We will also try to study the extent to which his training at the Conservatory and with Charles Tournemire may have played a determining role in his conception of music teaching.
