She took composition lessons from Friedrich Flotow and composition and piano lessons from Frederic Chopin. Later she studied composition with Camille Saint-Saëns who even dedicated his oratorio Oratorio de Noel to Clémence. Even though she was wealthy, most of her compositions were published under pseudonyms like Caroline Blangy, Clémence Valgrand, Maria Felicita de Reiset and Maria Reiset de Tesier.

In 1880 she received Rossini prize for her oratorio La fille de Jaïre.
