The meet favorable period in the whole school life for laying a solid foundation for the intelligent ren�dering of music is the first three years, and here is where we must make a more sensible and intelligent beginning. We need first to appreciate the ability of the little child to learn the elements of music. This we shall never know till we learn better how to pre�sent these elements in their.' simplicity, in accordance with the mental laws, by which the mind acquires a
knowledge of all subjects. The supposition has been that little children could not be taught to read music intelligently, simply because it had not been generally and successfully accomplished. The failure has not been on account of inability on the part of the chil�dren to learn music, nor on account of the notation by which it is represented, as some would have us to believe, but on account of a lack of knowledge among those employed in the teaching of this subject.�Holt.
