Music in Schools.
Although there have been great changes in the musical scene in the past 15 years, such as development of creative music-making and instrumental playing and new ways of testing musical experience and knowledge, it is only very recently that specific accomodation for music has begun to be included in the design of school buildings. This set of circumstances demands that school authorities provide the facilities that first-rate musical work demands and that teachers adapt themselves to rapidly changing circumstances, and through personal musicianship and a realistic sense of priorities, to equip themselves to help in guiding public taste. This pamphlet lays down some broad principles which have guided successful education in music in the past and which, examined and renewed in terms of modern conditions, may still prove helpful to those who are willing to interpret them according to their own and their pupils' needs. It is concluded that while new kinds of primary, middle, and secondary schools are now coming into being, the process of music education should develop without interruption from one stage to the next.
