THE MUSIC TEACHER. 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 is placed.* A NATURAL (4) is used to contradict or take away the power of a flat or sharp. V After a sharped tone the ear naturally expects the next above, but after aflatted tone the next below.

In the melodic form of the minor cale, thi viz.: from one to two, a major second; two t( to four, four to five, five to six, and six to s seven to eight, a minor second. The descendi differs, viz. : eight to seven, and seven to six a minor second; five to four, and four to th two, minor second; two to one, major second.

How many major and mnOr s melodic form of the minor scale ascending, and between which numerals do they the seconds descending In what respect does this formof the scale differ from theh How does it differ from the major sale, &c. 1 , The scale of A minor has the same signature that C major some guide is necessary in order to distinguikh between the tv the signature is natural, and any part commences on A, it is g( the minor mode.
