rEducational Music Books of RARE VALUEi 


GEO. L. SPAULDING’S 



Trade-marK Registered MCMXI. 

This is ihe biggest little book ever published, it was in¬ 
vented to overcome the greatest drawback pupils have 
to contend with, i.e., that of identifying the notes. 

If you are learning to sing or play the piano, organ, 
violin, cornet, clarinet, flute, trombone or any other 
musical instrument, the “ NOTE-SPELLER ” will teach 
you to read the notes accurately in a small fraction of 
the time heretofore consumed, without in the least in¬ 
terfering with your present routine of practice. 

In one month, students of the “NOTE-SPELLER” will 
have leaped a year ahead in their studies. 

The foundation for the study of music is between its 
covers. 


Read what some of the most prominent pedagogs have to say regarding it; 
CHARLES DENNEE—“It ought to be a very popular book.” 
GUSTAV L. BECKER—"Itis bound to be successful.” 

ARTHUR FOOTE—“I should say it would answer its purpose well.” 
HENRY L. GIDEON—“The booklet will come into wide popularity” 
F. E. FARRAR—“I shall use it myself.” 

ERNEST R. KROEGER—“—-‘Will become a standard.” 

LOUIS STILLMAN—“It is thoroughly practical.” 

RAFAEL SAUMELL—“I congratulate Mr. Spaulding.”

TaSM&unc Gamutt Skimne* 


These books are the quintessence of simplicity, origi¬ 
nality and charm combined. 

Those contemplating the study of music never had such 
a splendid opportunity to delve into the mysteries of the 
keyboard with so little effort. 

Beginning with the staff the composer systematically 
takes the pupil in a whimsical manner through the entire 
system of notation. That the text may be the more 
quickly understood, the pages are redolent with picture 
cuts and half tones. 

Nothing of a like nature on the market. Appropriate 
for kindergartens, class work or private tuition.

pianist it i9 necessary to have perfect con¬ 
trol over the muscles of the fingers. The

The work faithfully lives up to its title,

on the mind and fingers which encourages 
confidence and ease in playing in any key 
and scale. ,

A Practical Piano Course for Beginners 

By EDUARD HOLST 

A systematic course of instruction of a diversifying type. It starts the 
pupils at the very beginning and leads them, step by step, with proper 
graduality, to the easy third grade. 

Although a teacher of long experience, Mr. Holst realized when he began 
his task of compiling this book that his was no easy one, considering the many 
excellent volumes on the same subject already published. So after accumulat¬ 
ing all the possible material he could find, he carefully sifted the useful from 
the useless, and being benefited by the mistakes of his predecessors, succeeded 
finally in finishing the most concise work, from the beginner’s point of view, 
on the market. 

A recreative melody at every opportunity rather than a tedious exercise 
has been inserted, making the interest doubly strong. 

A thoroughly reliable work, easily comprehended. 

Don’t decide upon your course of instruction until you have seen this one.

HOW TO STRIKE 
THE KEYS 

•n* PIANO-::* 

l> 

J. ALFRED JOHNSTONE 


In order to become a proficient pianist 
the principles and practice of technic must 
be thoroughly mastered, but in order to 
accomplish this the finger muscles have to 
be properly developed, that they may be 
made to STRIKE the keys according to 
the will of the performer. 

This work contains no note exercises, 
being practically an essay on the fingers, 
dealing directly upon all points needed for 
the acquirement of correct finger and 
wrist technic. 

What the dictionary is to your library, 
this work is to your music room.

Phrasing in Piano Playing 


An Elementary Ouide 
with Examples 

By J. ALFRED JOHNSTONE 

The object of this work is to 
tell in the clearest and simplest 
way how piano music should be 
phrased,particularly that branch 
which treats of the articulation 
of music from a constructive and 
punctuating point of view. The 
volume also contains an outline 
of some common forms of music, 
treats of musical sentences and 
their right phrasing, how to dis¬ 
tinguish the various uses of the 
slur, etc.

Violin Technic Simplified 

Based upon mental control and change of positions 
A new system for Perfect Intonation 
By LEO C, BRYANT, Pupil of Goby Eberhardt 
and Merrick B. Hilderbrandt 

In this work, the author, giving the public the benefit of 
his many years’ experience as a practical teacher and student, 
proves conclusively that the quickest method of acquiring a 
perfect violin technic, is, not in exhausting one’s entire strength 
on tedious etudes, but rather by concentrating the mind on the 
muscular development of the individual fingers, as each finger 
has a special task to perform, it must be trained accordingly, 
in order to do its part thoroughly. 

That the description of the gymnastic exercises may be 
easily comprehended, illustrations taken from life-photographs 
are interspersed throughout.

Violin Scales 

And Everything Pertaining to the Practice of them, 
as used at the leading European Conservatories and 
by the great modern Masters. 

Compiled, Arranged and Fingered by Christian Kriens 
This remarkably practical book was the direct result of its 
author’s discovery of what he rightly describes as “the crying 
need for a book that contains all the scales and everything 
pertaining to them.” Prior to the appearance of Kriens “Violin 
Scales,” it was necessary for the teacher to use several books 
at once or have the pupil write out the scales. Hence the rea¬ 
son for this valuable book. Its inspiration lies in the truism 
“Scale practice makes the master.” “VIOLIN SCALES” con¬ 
tains a system of fingering that is the result of the author’s 
careful comparison of all existing fingering methods, and he 
has chosen only that which, in his expert opinion, seemed the 
most practical uniform and clear in each cast, as well as of most 
benefit to the student.
