5th, What is the name of first note in the Base? in the Soprano? in the Alto? in the Tenor? 6th, What kind of measure and on what beat or count does it com-
mence ? 7th, How many accents and what part of the measure is accented. See that the class understand what you wish them to do, and they will cheerfully do it.
Before you commence to sing have all the class produce the tone represented by the first note in their different parts; have them give you a strong chord. It is an
assurance they will sing the piece well. Teachers, do a//you can for the interest of your class and the advancement of the science of music. Class or congregation,
