From 1924, he went deeper into his musical studies, which were completed completes under the direction of Charles KOECHLIN, and Albert ROUSSEL encouraged him to compose.

CHARLES KOECHLIN  (private correspondence)
 
... I went to hear the Psalm of Mr Goué, and I found this work very touching, very significant…/... I appreciated a lot, especially, the Quintet touching and powerful, and so full with interior life.../… I would have especially liked to say to you as I found beautiful the melodies of Goué…/…The hearing of the fragments of Wanda was very touching. We especially appreciated the 2nd piece with its evocation of the ocean…/… I like a lot the Trio with cords, particularly.
