She studied composition and organ at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston and afterwards taught in the music departments at Shorter College in Arkansas (1906-1910), and Clark University in Georgia (1910-1912). Among her most famous compositions is the Symphony in E Minor which won the Wanamaker Prize in 1931. Price died on June 3, 1953 of a stroke in Chicago, Illinois.
