Excerpt from First Music Reader

The publication of this material separate from the pupil's book has distinct advantages. Rote songs, voice drills, piano accompaniments and all explanatory matter pertaining to teaching obviously belong to a teacher's book. The pupil's book is thus left not only free from matter confusing to him, but also with much more space available for his benefit. Adequacy of material for both teacher and pupil is thus secured to the greatest degree.

The requirements deduced from the discussion Vocal Music in the Elementary Schools, pp. Vii to xiii, form the basis of the New Educational Music Course. In the present volume, pp. I to 58 contain rote songs and voice drills; pp. 62 to 215, all material of the First Music Reader, together with suggestions to teachers, pp. 217 to 262, an Appendix, - a collection of songs from the great composers, arranged and adapted for children. All one-part songs throughout the book have piano accompaniments.

Credit is due Mr. W. C. Hoff, Director of Music in the public schools of Yonkers, New York, for the' material incorporated in the discussion of the child-voice and its development.
