French romantic composer, Hector Berlioz, was born in the year 1803 on the 11th of December. In addition to being a composer, he was also very influential as a music critic.
Hector Berlioz, is equal of great significance as Ludwig van Beethoven in the classical music for the Romantic Period , where Ludwig van Beethoven paved the lane as the founder of Romantic Classical music in Germany and Austria, Hector Berlioz was the ancestor of Romantic Classical music in France. Also in the late Classic Period which was followed by the Romantic Period, he was the founder of the so called Programme Music, a style where the composer will lead the listener through a sort of made visual of a story told with instruments. More of the composers liked this sort of music, Ludwig van Beethoven composed 'Pastorale', Hector Berlioz his 'Symphonie Fantastique', and for example 'Kinderszenen' by Schumann. In that particular period Liszt composed the first so called 'symphonic poem' 'Dante Sonate' which was followed up by for example Smetena with his 'Ma Vlast' or 'the Moldau'. and Richard Strauss with 'Also sprach Zarathustra'. Ergo he was very important for the Classical Music.
Berlioz wrote during the Romantic period and his music conforms to the norms of romantic music rather than classical. However, if you mean classical music as opposed to pop, the answer is yes.
According to his autobiography, Memoires de Hector Berlioz, he started studying, composing and playing music (guitar and flute) at the age of twelve, which would have been about 1815. He began formally studying composition around 1823.
