THE  MUSIC  TRACIIHI 
What letter Is sharped ? A. F. Why do we sharp r I A. To regulate the order
of intervals. 
What is the order of intervals in all the transpositions ? A. Between three
and four, and sevei 
and eight. are minor seconds; all the rest are major seconds. Name the letters
to the scale of G. 
A. G is one, A is two, B is three,' C is four, D is five, E is six, F# is
seven, and G is eight. 
RsEAax.-Most classes will be able to understand the theory, and, to a certain
ex- 
tent, the practical part of the art that we have been oyer, in about twelve
or thirteen 
lessons, ~the teacher has beenfaitful. Many classes will require twenty-four,
or even 
more lessons, to acquire what we have been over in these few lessons. There
is but 
little danger of going too slow in teaching the elements of music. The rest
of the trans- 
positions may be taken up as the class may require, but let it be impressed
on the mind, 
that if the first transposition is well understood, all the rest will come
easy, and but 
little time will be required in teaching them. 
SECOND TRANSPOSITION BY SHARPS (KEY or D).-One is written on D, 
the fifth to G, and in order to preserve the order of intervals, two sharps
are used; viz., C4 (new sharp) and F,; thus,
