I lit I J: bird told inr
Thai there is ;i notion prevalent
anions limsie students that to be
a pianist one need only practise
the pianoforte; to be a vocalist,
only practise singing, and so
forth. I seem always to be revert
ing to the psychologist .lames;
yel I must do so once again. He
said or wrote one time, "We learn
to skate in summer and to swim
in winter.'' When I first read that
I supposed that the typesetter had
made a mistake. But I have since
learned the important truth of
that saying. Now, if it should
appear lo you that Mr. -James was
wrong in that statement, let me
tell you that he was not nearly so
wrong as you are, if you have the
no!ion thai the little bird lells me
Thjil: which I wish to impress
upon you is, that there is ;i great
deal more to learn than can be
learned bv lesson-taking. You
must take yourselves in hand;
yon must try to understand so
much about the progress and de
velopment of music as to enable
you to judge where you and we
all. now are in its evolution. You
should, as pianist foi* example,
know as much about the develop
ment of your instrument and its
precursors, as to enable you to un
derstand the style and form of
compositions from the Partita
and /Suite to the modern Sonata.
This will have its influence upon
Did you ever observe or think
how much there is in small com
pass in one of liacli \s> tiro-part I li
mit ions, or that little Martini
(iaroltr, so many of yon are play
ing? Have you the knowledge
requisite to discover the closely
packed thought that is in these?
Can you "without aid" analyze it,
indicating its themes, its inter
ludes, its various keys, etc.? 1
can hear you urge the objection
that all this makes no difference
in the worth of music as such,
however ingenious and skilful it
may be, and is only interesting to
those who know about it. Well,
Lnoiring about it is the very niat
ter about which I am talking to
you. I want you to be enamoured
with the interest of knowing
I can understand, however, that
some may turn from such analysis
and say: "'Music is a matter of
emotional enjoyment, not of logi
cal study, like this.'' To which
tlie reply must be made that it is
of little use to talk about the uses
of musical knowledge to those
who are not willing to think. And
that is why so many find music
difficult. 11 is not because of the
special difficulty of the subject,
but because they do not think.
And one of the uses of trying to
acquire musical knowledge is that
of mental training and discipline,
in connection with a delightful
and refining subject.
I have tried to hint at the value
of .Musical History, and Analysis:
let me now hint upon Harmony,
or a knowledge of the chords. II
is necessary for nie to speak of
theni as dominant 7th, diminished
7th, dominant chord in 10 minor,
relative minor of I), etc. And you
say, "Oh, I should never remem
ber all that, and those hard
names!" I tell you that the know
ing all these chords thus, is just
the thing that enables me to re
member the passage. This kind of
knowledge is a great help to mem
ory. The non-musician has to try
to remember that the chord con
sists of F sharp, A natural, C nat
ural, 10 flat and so on, and it must
be respelled • each time. To the
harmonist it is like a word and it
is as easily read: And like a word
it bears relation to what precedes
it and what follows it.
We in this school, as in all in
stitutions worthy any notice, de
sire that you should be not pre
tenders nor performers, vocal or
instrumental merely, hut music
ians with knowlege for all you un
dertake. I have tried to hint only
at lines of investi/ation. There is
a great deal to know, and it is
worth knowing; and most inter
esting is the task of acquiring it.
Do not be superficial, hut deter
mine, in the best sense of the
word, to he thorough.
At the regular meeting of the
•Joseph Moore Science Club on
Wednesday, the 24th, it was decid
ed to discuss during the rest of
the meetings of the year the gen
eral subject, "The Conduction of
Electricity Through Cases."' As
this will necessitate the use of a
great deal of electrical apparatus
llio club will moot hereafter iu the
Physical Laboratories. Mr. I >ix
-011 had charge of the meeting and
spoke of the fundamental proper
ties of electricity, showing many
experiments and defining several
terms which it will be necessary
to understand before taking up
the rest of the work.
