Stark was born in Munich. He studied philosophy and music at the University of Munich and at the age of twenty-six co-founded the Conservatory of Stuttgart, where he also served as a teacher of harmony, singing and music history. In 1858 he published with Sigmund Lebert the Grosse theoretisch-praktische Klavierschule, a piano method which was translated into several languages and widely distributed in both Europe and America.[1]
