Music Department " The man that hath no musil in himself nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treason, stratagem and spoil, " — Shakfspeare. REVECCA COLLEGE was established tor the purpose of training young men and women for a life of service and usefulness. A preparation that will enable them to go at God ' s call as messengers to all parts of the world. Our leaders understand that in order to have a well-balanced curriculum, music must be included, and so provision was made for a Music Department, which took in both instrumental and vocal instruction. Music is a very important factor in our educational centers today. " Music is life, " wonderful and vibrating. It energizes the greatest machine in the world, the human machine. Music and its influence in the life cannot be separated, for it is a vital factor in the home, the school, and the church. Every true home is one in which there is music. The home ties are strengthened by memory of the old songs in which every member of the family took part. Music has held a very important place in the church ever since its foundation. During its earliest history, Paul, in writing to the Ephesians, used these words: " Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your hearts to the Lord. " Matthew also says, " And when they had sung an hymn they went out into the Mount of Olives. " We see even in those days that the true followers of Christ found consolation and inspiration in music. However, there can be no musical church until the people themselves are inspired to take part in the services. People do not go to church to be sung at; they go to sing. John Wesley had the right idea. Perhaps one of the reasons why some of the churches are dying out is that there is " giving out " upon the part of so few of the singers. Let the choir hold up the musical standards, but we should not forget that worship means participation, forth putting, giving out. As for music in the school, that is also very important. If during the first years in school the child is taught the best songs, then as progress is made an appre- ciation of the best type of music may be instilled into their minds. As the " public school music " system is developed, it will be possible to give even more efficient training and music will be a still greater factor in the school. The road to success in music is practice. Life has along it so many grounded rocks, that, where discouragement threatens, all we need to do is to plant our feet on a higher hold and lift ourselves to a more invigorating atmosphere. 4 '
