Woodbury, I. B. (Issac Baker), 1819-1858 (ed.) / The new lute of Zion: a collection of sacred music, designed for the use of congregations generally, but more especially the Methodist Episcopal Church

The music teacher,   pp. [III]-XXXVIII


The pupil will observe, that from any letter to the same made flat or 
sharp, the interval is a chromatic one; and from any letter to the next 
above or below in the chromatic scale, the interval is a chromatic second.
QUET1(oN.-What is the interval from C to C# (sharp)T C$ to D, &c.? C
to B descending? 
Ittolb(fhat)? B2toA? AtoA ,&c.? 
Commence the practice of the chromatic scale something in the follow- 
ing manner-the class sing one, after which the teacher sings sharp one, 
the class imitating him. Then two, sharp two, &c. 
REMARK.-For the future the class should devote a short time, each lesson,
to the 
practice of this scale. 
The influence of a sharp or flat extends from measure to measure, until a
note intervenes which is on a different degree from that before which it
A NATURAL (4) is used to contradict or take away the power of a flat 
or sharp. 
After a sharped tone the ear naturally expects the next above, but after
aflatted tone the next below.
