Hungarian violinist, violin teacher, conductor and composer. He studied singing with Mathias Engesser and Gotthard Wöhler, composition and piano with Carl Thern, and violin with Karl Huber (musician) (father of Jenő Hubay) and David Ridley-Kohne at the National Conservatory in Budapest. In 1871 Gobbi was invited to teach violin at the National Conservatory, and on February 7, 1872 he was appointed to the violin professor of the National Conservatory. In 1885, after Karl Huber's death, Gobbi was appointed to the conductor of the conservatory student orchestra, which he enhanced with the wood-wind students, and increased to very high level. Joseph Joachim who played once with the orchestra Max Bruch's Violin concerto was so delighted with the accompaniment, that he embarrassed Alois Gobbi in front of the audience. From 1901 to 1918 Gobbi was director of the institution.
