With the jjrogress made in the United States during the last twenty-five years the time, it is presumed, cannot be distant when the necessity of studying music by the solfeggio method before attempting the study of voice or of an instrument will be held in the same estimation here as it is held in many European countries, and will be sustained by the young generation of teachers. The word " Solfeggio " is rather an unfortunate one. To many people it carries the idea that it is something which is far removed from the useful and the practical, and that its use offers no real, .substantial advantages: while, in fact, the term, as now employed, designates a set of principles and an accumulation of knowledge which is practical to a very high degree, if not absolutely indispensable to the reading and understanding of music. To attempt to learn to sing, or to play an instrument before being able to read music accurately is a gross error. The imperfect reading interposes unneces.sary difficulties in the way of the student, and needlessly ob- structs his course of advancement. Teaching, doubtless, will be the lot of the nuijority of the graduating class. As teachers you may do much to develop this branch of in.struction, in which all the knowledge acquired at the Conservatory will be put to use. Thus you will contribute a great deal to the advancement of music in this country.

Bassett Robert McClelland Gardiner Brown Frank W. Yeaw In 1898 there was founded at the New England Conservatory of Music an organization known as the Sinfonia Club. Incorporated in 1901 as the Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity of America, it has since expanded to include fifty-two chapters. Having as its purpose the advancement of music in America, Sinfonia has striven to encourage its members to greater efforts by the awarding of scholarships and prizes. To increase the familiarity of its members with American music each chapter offers an annual concert of American compositions. In addition to this there are presented each year informal concerts of various works, and members are urged to contribute to the public concerts and recitals of the school. The fraternity also affords an opportunity for recreation by its numerous social events. There are smokers, impromptu gatherings, and dances run in collaboration with other fra- ternities. 51 T HE N E U M E 19 3 5 Mu Phi Epsilon OFFICERS President Vice-Pre.sidenf Treasurer Recording Secretary ( ' orrespoiidiuf Secrctari Historian Wardert Chorister Chaplain Alumnae Secretary Shirley Bagley Freiderica Chapple Ruth Austen Elizabeth Adams Eugenia Frothingham Esther Pope Dorothy Rodger Alice Fisher Mrs. Emily Ellis .

Iota ( hapter was installed at the New England Conservatory in 19 ' -28. Pi Kappa Lambda is a musical society corresponding to Phi Beta Kappa. Possession of its key is evidence of super- ior musicianship and accomplishment. " This society is established to provide an organization dedicated to the furtherance of musical education. Its prime object is the encouragement of eminent achievement in performance or original composition. To that end, special emphasis is placed upon the maintenance of a curriculum so designed as to insure the utmost development in the applied branches of the art. " Outstanding members of the upper fourth of the graduating class and faculty members of five years standing are eligible for membership. Iota Chapter boasts such names in American music as George W. Chadwick, Frederick S.

The neces- sity of expression will follow the line of least resistance. " — Fritz Kreislcr " The student who wants beautiful effects must imagine beautiful effects. He must hear with his mind ' s ear and demand that his fingers |)roduce what he hears. " — Iffnaz Friedman " You should read much music; this is most useful in sharpening the mind ' s ear. Never play a piece until you have thus heard it inirardlij. For this pur[)()se I should commend to you particularly the tViO chorals and the ' well-tenij)ercd Clavichord ' of Bach. " — Robert Srlininann " Plenty have natural voices equal to mine, plenty have talent ecpial to mine, but I have worked. " — Lillian Xnrdiea " Let him concentrate his mental energy on the (juality of i)itch he intends to produce, and sooner or later he will find his way of expressing him.self. " — J a. sell (t IJeifetz " Relaxation is .synonymous with good pianoforte playing. " — Arthur Schnabel " All violin playing in its essence is the quest for color; its perfection, that subtle art which hides art, and which is so rarely understood. " — Arthur Hartmann " In the wider .sen.se of the word, the greatest artists are .self-taught. " — Mincha Levitzki (Concerning Leschetizky) " He had scant patience for incompetence of any kind, and his remarks were ab.solutely ruthless. To one j)uj)il he once said in a class, ' Well, what in the world do you think you are doing? There you sit ju.st as if you were going to lay an egg. Why don ' t you do something? ' " — Hen no Moixeiwitsch " Time and again I have known Paderewski to keep on working until three and four in the morning, often doing from fourteen to sixteen hours in a day. " — Harold Bauer " One final word to students: Don ' t get discouraged. Every time you permit discouragement to rule, you are losing ground. — Ernest Schelling 57 Compliments of KAPPA GAMMA PSI Compliments of ALPHA CHI OMEGA €lm PHARMACY 58 GAINSBORO STREET Cor.
