SIC TEACHER. 
In-     REMAz.-The terms whole and half tones are deservedly discontinued
by may of 
our best teachers, and the more correct terms of major and minor econds sub
ttuted. 
A whole tone is a sound, and not an interval or distawe from one sound to
another. 
Besides the above named intervals, we have thirds, fourths, fifths, &e.
Let the teacher 
exercise the pupils in the intervals something as follows :-Teacher says
(pointing to 
11e  them on the blackboard), Sing one. The pupils sing, Do. Teacher.-Sing
three.P - 
pilg.-Mi.  Teacher.-Sing five. Pupils.-Sol, &c. When the pupils have
acquired 
readiness in the intervals 1, 3, 5, 8, others may be gradually introduced;
the fourth 
first, then the second and fourth; second, fourth, and sixth; second, fourth,
sixth, and 
seventh; and, finally, all the intervals. 
ere we have a series of progressive intervals, from  the most sniple to 
aost difficult.
