He was taught by organist Hermann Kallenbach of the church of Christiansborg palace from 1904-1907 he was student in the conservatory in Leipzig under Stephan Krehl, Arthur Nikisch and Hans Sitt. During his time in Leipzig he wrote amongst other pieces his quartet Op.3 which received the conservatory’s composition prize – the Nikisch Prize. After an additional six months study in Dresden, Gram returned to Copenhagen where he worked as composition and theory teacher. Amongst his students were Knudåge Riisager and the Swedish composer John Fernström. From 1908-1913 he programmed a biannual symphony concert with predominantly contemporary music. In 1912 he received The Anckerske Grant and travelled through Germany and Austria and on to Paris.

From 1918-1931 he was conductor in the Danish Concert Association. The Danish Concert Association had a very significant impact for the Copenhagen music scene. They were very supportive of young Danish composers and set up the most significant major solo, choral and orchestral works by both Danish and foreign composers of the time.
