The object of this thesis is to show to what extent music is recognized in the public schools. Its growth, in other words, from the singing school to the well rounded and organized music course of the present day public school. There is a slowly developing conviction that m ch of the old teaching of art in. the schools is attended by great waste, if not real injury to children on account of false pedagogical principles and lack of understanding of. child development. In the development of this thesis, I will try to show the new methods of music in the schools are tending to replace the old, mechanical and harmful methods.
