Music in the Training Colleges of England and Wales 1872-1899: Perspectives from HMI
Lynch, Michael
British Journal of Music Education, v27 n2 p171-184 Jul 2010
In 1872 John Hullah was appointed Inspector of Music in Training Colleges and his first act was to introduce a practical examination for each of the students. Each year he visited all of the colleges receiving financial aid from the Government to examine the students after which he wrote up his findings in a report for the Committee of Council on Education. These reports, and those of his successor John Stainer, give a unique account of music in the training colleges in the period 1872 to 1899.
