Most of her life, d'Hardelot was engaged in teaching singing and diction at her home in London, and many of her pupils attained success In 1896 she toured the United States with Calvé Her first real success as a composer was won with "Because", though her song "Sans Toi" had previously been favorably received Among her other successes may be mentioned "I Know a Lovely Garden", "I Think", "I Hid My Love", "Dawn", and "A Bunch of Violets"
