Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1845, by 
in the Clerk’s Office of the District Court for the District of Massachusetts. 

Ec} Two editions of this work are issued— one, of about 300 pages, including songs with words 
arranged for two and three voices — the other of about 200 pages, without the songs. The last mentioned 

is designed for adult schools, to be used in connection with some collection of church music. 

See ee 



The principal design of this work is, to 
furnish a thorough course of theoretical and 
practical instruction in vocal music, with a 
sufficient number of exercises. to enable the 
teacher to dispense with the use of a black 
‘board, except for illustration. For this pur- 
pose, besides the usual number of rules and 
songs which are commonly found in works of 
this kind, it contains more than five hundred 
exercises and solfeggios, (songs without 

words, 1..e. to be sung with syllables,) vary- 



ing from four measures, to three pages in 
length, and in point of difficulty, from the 
easiest to the most difficult rhythmic and me- 

One hundred of. the 

solfeggios are popular airs arranged for three 

lodic combinations. 

voices, forming lessons at once agreeable and 
useful. | 

The book is believed to include everything © 
necessary to make it a valuable text-book for 
schools and classes in which music is thor- 

oughly and systematically taught. 



ELEMENTARY PrinctpuEes. The order in which _the 
elementary principles are arranged, differs somewhat from the 
usual one, but is still, it is believed, perfectly natural and pro- 
Though these are doubtless susceptible of improvement, yet the 
author has not attempted to change them, because it is intended 
that the explanations and questions shall be made in the teach- 
er’s own language, without regard. to those which are printed. 

The printed explanations are not to be studied by the pupils ; they’ 

merely suffice to show the subject of each set or chapter of exer- 
cises, although they may also serve as useful references for the 
learners, and as guides to the teacher. They are not made sufli- 
ciently plain to be understood without'a teacher. Teachers using 
this work should be already acquainted with the Pestalozzian 
method as’ laid down, fully, in Mason’s Manual, or; briefly; in 
most of the recently published collections of Church Music. — The 
exercises in this part-of the book are very easy, and in general 
do not exceed four or five measures in length. They are, how- 
ever, believed to be sufficient to give a practical knowledge of 
the principles they are designed to illustrate, while in the vocal 
exercises, (pp. 79 and 199,) and in the solfege ios, (pp. 85,) 
longer, more interesting, and more difficult lessons, may be 
found in abundance. - 

INTERVALS, PAGE 77. For want of room,’ extended exer- 
cises on intervals have not been introduced. On pages 77 and 78, 
a short example of each is given; which should be practised, first 

with syllables, afterwards with Ja or some other syllable, and 

lastly with words. Being in the key of C they are rather high, 
but they may be transposed, if desirable, to the key of A or G 

The terms ‘and expressions are those, im common use.; 

VocauL ExERcIsres, PAGE 79. These are exercises for ac- 
quiring rapidity of utterance, and smoothness and flexibility of 
voice. ‘They should be practised at each lesson. No. 1 may be 

‘introduced. as early as the first meeting of a class; and the others 

as soon afterwards as possible. 

After they are all learned, it 

would be well to commence every lesson, by singing through the 
six pages, continuing the practice even through the fiole course. 

As it.cannot be supposed that the members of a class can at first 
read the notes, the above direction implies, of « course, that they 

“must be ietaed by rote. 

SoLfre@aios, PAGE 85. The definition of the word Solfexeio 
is, ‘a musical composition without words, designed as an exercise 
in reading music.’ This is the sole design of the exercises which 
commence on page 85. Teachers generally agree that it is highly 
desirable for singers to become expert in applying the syllables, 
as the quickest method to learn to read music well. Learners, 
especially the young, are often averse to performing the mental 
labor necessary for acquiring this ability, and are more so, if the 
exercises they are required to practise are of an uninteresting kind. 
A popularair, or a marked melody, forms the basis of each of these 
solfeggios. Experience shows that learners, old and young, are 
much pleased with such airs,,and are willing to take more pains 
to learn them, than they are to learn exercises destitute of melo- 

-dy., As these airs are.without werds, they will at once see, that 

they must learn to sing them by syllable, or not at all. In 
order better to adapt this work for Female Seminaries 
and the older classes in Juvenile Singing Schools, all the 
Solfeggios are arranged for first and second treble and alto 
voices, although in many instances one or more parts are 


“written with the base clef, that the'.pupils may become.equally 
familiar with that clef... In: classes. composed of ladies and gen- 
tlemen, the solfeggios can be sung in one. of several ways, at the 
discretion of the teacher. 
gentlemen one ; the ladies one, the gentlemen two ; the ladies 
alone in three parts ; the gentlemen alone in. three parts; the 
treble and high tenor the first part, the second.treble and low tenor 
or high base'the second part, and thealtoand base, the third part, 
etc. etc. The best effect will probably be produced when only la- 
dies:sing, but in the other cases the Solfeggios will be equally use- 
ful as exercises in reading musicgg— In some Schools it will doubt- 
less not be possible always to sustain the three parts. In such cases 
one may be omitted. Sometimes it may even be necessary to have 
the whole class always sing the same part: The melody, in the 
solfeggios, will always form a, useful exercise even when sung 
alone, and in the most of the pieces, the third part may-be omitted, 
without seriously injuring the effect. —It may be well to remark, 
that these exercises have -been arranged in the manner that will 
make them most useful for learning to read music, and that 

even some of the strict rules of musical composition, have been 

sacrificed to this one object. For this purpose, algo, the 
SOLFEGGIOS MARKED * in the index, have been arranged: in 
such a way that no air, will be apparent, unless.all of the parts are 
sung, and by voices of the same pitch, i. e. by ladies’ voices 
alone, or by gentlemen’s voices alone. To give them their proper 
effect, the parts should be equally balanced, both as it regards 
strength and quality of voice. When this is done, the melody 

will be distinctly heard, while, a previous acquaintance with it 

will be of no assistance to the performer. 

VOCAL EXERCISES, PAGE 199. Some of these exercises are 
of the same nature as those commencing on page 79, and may 

The ladies) may. sing two. parts, the | 

be used m connection with them. ‘The most of them, however, are 
exercises in dificult rhythmic and melodic combinations, each of 
which will probably require much practice. After a class have 

sufficiently advanced to sing them understandingly, a short time 

at. each lesson spent upon these exercises, will be. very useful in 
enabling them to surmount such difficulties. When the pupils 
are perfectly familiar with the exercises which commence on 
page 79, it may be well to practise them with the syllables ‘la,’ 
‘ah,’ or ‘ah-men.’ ‘The first syllable of a group may also be. 
used for all the notes composing that group. 

Sones, PAGE 211. These songs, like the solfeggios, are ar- 
ranged for female voices, and+are mostly from the German. 
Among them are several for children and a few for various occa- 
sions ina seminary ; but the majority belong to that tribe of songs 
called im German, VoLKsLInpmR, (songs of the people,) which 
seem to be better suited to the seminary and fireside, ‘than - 
more difficult ones. A few common hymn tunes and chants are 
also'added, the words of which are suitable-for the opening or 
closing services of school. a 

Course or Instruction. The following brief outline, 
will, perhaps, more clearly show the manner in which the book is 
designed to be used. After the usual preliminary remarks, let the 
teacher commence by explaining in familiar language the divisions 
of the subject, illustrating, if desirable, upon the blackboard. 
Then let him direct attention to the remarks on this. subject 
in the book, asking the questions there given, or similar ones of 
his own. Attention may also be directed to the divisions as they 
are actually arranged, directing the pupils to notice how many 
pages are devoted to Rhythm, how many to Melody, and how 
many to Dynamics. He then says, ‘‘we now commence, of . 
course, with Rhythm,’’ and questions upon the subject of Rhythm 

‘as laid down on page 1—Chap.I. As the subject of Rhythm . 

is the length of sownds the first thing for the learner to do, is to 
learn to measure them. In this chapter the fact that musical 
sounds are measured by time, must be explained ; also the man- 
ner in which it is done, viz., by dividing the time into equal por- 
tions, called measures, and the manner in which measures are 
represented in written music. These can be explained either in the 
tedcher’s own language and with his own illustrations upon the 
blackboard, or in the language and with the illustration contaimed 
in the book. Chap. II. is upon beating time. This cannot 
receive too much attention. Perhaps no method can better be 
taken to convey the idea of the regularity with which the hand 
must move, than to impress strongly upon the mind of the pupils 
the ideas contained in this chapter. In Chap. HI, the scholars 
learn the names, forms and lengths of the notes. The teacher 
need not adopt the manner of speaking of the lengths of 
the notes introduced here, although it is without doubt the plain- 
est language for beginners. It is true as far as this book is con- 
cerned, and learners readily comprehend their usual meaning, after 
having been accustomed to regard them as here explained. In 
Chap LV, singing in connection with beating the time, is intro- 
duced. Chap. V, is devoted to the practise of whole, half and 
quarter notes. Such exercises are somewhat tedious, and it will 
verhaps be better, to review them at two or three successive 

lessons, than to spend much time upon them when first intro- 


This is the proper place to introduce meLopy. ‘The teacher 
should now make himself familiar with the songs and solfeggois, 
and introduce them as fast as the knowledge of the scholars will 
permit. For example, as soon as the elass.are able to sing the 
exercises in Chap V, (page 26,) they can sing, understandingly, the 


upper part of the song ‘ Flight of Time,’ page 221. After chapter 
VIL in Melody has been studied, the middle part of Solfeggio 
No.1, (page 85,) may be introduced, (because it contains nothing 
with which the pupils will not have become acquainted when 

‘they have studied as far as the chapter mentioned,) also the upper 

part of Solfeggios, No. 3 and 4. After chapter XI in Melody, 
any of the solfeggios and songs in the key of C which do not 
contain sharps or flats, can be practised, and after the chromatic 
scale, all in the key of C. In this manner all of the solfeggios 
and songs should be gradually introduced. It may be well, as an 
exercise in pronunciation and musical expression, to allow some 
of the songs to be learned by rote. The teacher can, however, 
(and it is perhaps the better method,) adopt the plan, that no 
songs or solfeggios shall be sung until the school are able to sing 
them by note, taking care, however, that they are introduced as 
fast as the class acquire the requisite ability. 

For want of room, the songs and solfeggios arg arranged with- 
out a piano forte accompaniment. It is presumed, however, that 
even those unacquainted with thorough base will experience no 
difficulty in playing three parts. The third may be played an 
octave lower than it is written. In many of the solfeggios, it 
will, perhaps, be éasier to play the second and third parts with 
the left hand and the first part alone with the right hand. 

The songs are arranged for Ist and 2d Treble and Alto voices 
only. For classes composed of ladies and gentlemen, an edition 
in which the songs are omitted, is issued. See page II. 

The solfegeios are not arranged in progressive order, nor are 
those of the same key placed together ; it will, therefore, be 
necessary for the teacher to become sufficiently acquainted with 
them, to be able to select lessons suited to the state of advance- 
ment of the class. i

Nore. The first and principal thing to be done in melody, is to be- 

come perfectly acquainted with the eight sounds of the scale. The 
pupils must acquire the ability to sing each sound, with as much readi- 

ness a8 they can repeat the alphabet. At first, they will, of course, be | 

able to make the right sounds, only by imitation. The teacher must 
sing or play each, over and over again, until it is sung correctly. 
Through the whole course, the scale should be practised at each lesson, 
even long after the pupils are perfectly familiar with every sound. The 
teacher should,. also, often sing, with the-syllable La, sounds of the 
scale out of their regular order, and require the pupils to name them. 
The Germans call this an “ exercise in hearing,” and esteem it a very 
necessary part of elementary instruction. Previous to the introduc- 
tion of the next chapter, use in practising the scale, the words, One, 
Two, Three, &c.orthesyllableLa. =>

Note.» The figure exhibits the ye ae to the eye. They must be 
made equally plain to the ear. The teacher can sing or play sounds 
which are a step apart, and\some which are a half-step apart, » requiring 
the pupils to listen attentively, and note. the difference. “The school. 
can then be exercised something as follows. Let the Feacher si sing a 
sound with the syllable la, requiring the pupils to do the same. “Then 
let him say, ‘sing a sound a step higher than that you have just sung,’ 
‘a half-step lower than the last,’ &c., ‘continuing the ‘exercise, until 
they can easily sing sounds which are either a step, or a half-step 
apart. It is a good exercise to sing the scale in this way, commencing 
on different letters. For example, let the teacher require the sound D 
to be sung. Then say, ‘sing asound a step above the one you have just é' 
sung,’ ‘sing a sound a step higher still,’ ‘a half-atep higher than the last,’ 
‘a step higher, ‘a step higher)’ ‘a step higher? ‘a half-step higher.” De- 
scend in the same way. In all such exercises use the syllable la, and be 
sure the pupils get the right sounds, only by’mental calculation,” ‘It is 
recommended, that the school be thoroughly this way, as all. 
of the subsequent lessons are arranged on the supposition that the pupils 
are perfectly familiar with these intervals, theoretically and practically.

Voices are naturally divided into two classes, HIGH 

voices, and Low voices. ‘The first class can sing, at 

least, as high as|5. of the upper'scale, (See page 35,) 

but are usually unable to sing with ease, much lower 

than ons ofthe middle scale. The sécond class: can 
sing, at least, as low as 5 of the lower scale,’ but are 
unable to sing higher than 2 or 3 of the upper scale. 

In female voices, the first class is called the TREBLE, . 
In male voices, the ‘Gist | 

and the second, the ALTO. 
class i is called. te TENOR, and the second, the Base. 

Compass. of Treble and Tenor voices. 

Nore. The difference of piteh between Male and. Poca voices 
should now be explained. Also the difference i in boys’ voices, | before 
and after thoy change. 


Another class of voices, cannot sing. quite as high 

-as the first class, nor yet as low as the second... In 
| female~ voices, this variety is called Mezzo Soprano; 

in male voices, BARITONE. Commonly, in vocal music, 
no part is written for this class, and they must sing 

with either ‘the first or the second; he perhaps, 

with the second... ae 1 ode ie 


Nore. In male voices, the differences ee cer the two claséeri is 50

a ar; MODULATION. Sent Foie rals 

Ae, iy, or 4, occurring in the course of a tine as 
an accidental, ‘generally changes the key, in the same 
manner as if written in the signature. The F# in the 
fifth: and sixth measures of. (0. 1; changes those two 


measures to the- key that F#, when written in the sig- 
‘nature, indicates, i. e. to the nes of G. 

No. 1. 2 oV 


~The subject of modulation cannot be perfectly understood, without a 
_ knowledge of the principles of musical composition. _ If the chromatic 
_| scale has been thoroughly practised, such modulations as usually occur, 
- can be easily sung without changing the syllables, and it is hardly neces- 
| sary to dwell on the subject. r vn Aneiiee 

Nore. The modulations which most frequently occur, are those 
in Nos. 1 and 2. Such passages can be sung as easily without changing 

the syllables, as with. A passage in which a modulation to a distant +| ; 

key occurs, as in No. 3, is made much easier by a change of the sylla- 
bles; such passages, however, seldom if ever occur in vocak music. 


The minor scale explained in Chapter XXIV, is called 

| the Harmonic Scauz, because it can be correctly har- 
 monized ‘without modulating from the key in which: it 
is written. . It is, in fact, the only proper minor scale, 

but on account of the difficulty of singing szvEN’ cor- 
rectly in ascending, and s1x in descending the scale, 
(because of the interval of a step and a half,) a scale, 
called ‘the MELODIC MINOR SCALE is often used, in which 

this difficulty is avoided. In this scale, s1x in ascend- 
_ | ing is elevated by a sharp, and seven in descending, 
- | is depressed a half-step below its proper place, b 
| taking away the sharp, which Chapter XXIV tells us, 
~ | must always be expressed before it. _ ;

music. A chant in its regular form, consists of a re- 
citing or chanting note, followed by a cadence ‘of two 
measures inthe first part, and a chanting note follow- | 
ed by acadence of three measuresin thé second. The 
words which belong to the reciting note should ‘be 
chanted as fast, and with the same emphasis, as a good 
reader would read them. There is no such thing as 
time in a chant; although there is apparently some 
approach to it in the cadences, yet even. there the
