Excerpt from The Theory of Music: As Applied to the Teaching and Practice of Voice and Instruments

This Work is not so much intended for self-instruction, as to provide a systematized course by which teachers may assist their pupils toward that general knowledge which is neces sary to the true musician. The keen competi tion in the musical branches at present, is gradually leading the musician to become merely a specialist; to counteract this, a study Of those principles which underlie all music, such as the laws of Acoustics, musical form, etc., are most necessary, and this little volume is intended to become a text-book Of such studies. It naturally gives but an outline, the details Of which are to be filled in by the teacher. In the matter Of Acoustics, only those facts which are Of the utmost importance to the musician are stated, and no attempt is made to touch upon all the ramifications Of the interest ing subject. It is as ameans therefore, not as an end, that I hope this work may be accepted by musician and public.
