Sweet birds are sing - ing, and loud bells are ring - log. 
Nowthe day is past and gone, And we have ma-ny miles-o run.

Tunes should also be practiced by note. 
NoTL-Review first iesson most thoroughly. 
Although in the above examples each variety of measure has the same 
notes throughout the example, they may be varied to give variety; thus, 
In the first measure there is a half note to each beat; in the  d, two 
fourth uotes to a beat; in the third, two beats to the one note; and four
eights notes to a beat in the last measure. As the notes vary in the differ-
ent measures so the accent should also be changed. For exmple, in the eC
first measure the accent comes bn the first note; in the second measurc,
the first and third notes are accented, while in the third measure, there
being but one note, there is o accent; in the fourth measure, the first six-
teentl note to each beat should be accented. 
Example in triple measure of different notes in the different measures.
