Overview

Overview

New facsimile edition of a Classic Text of Music Education.
The title page of this book refers to Miss Fitton as the author of Conversations on Botany. She later wrote How I became a Governess (1861), describing her own musical background and how she worked in Paris, teaching English to perfect her French. This paid off when Conversations in Harmony was published in a French translation. Her approach follows the conventional conversation treatment, usually between mother and daughter but this time with a boy, perhaps reflecting an increased acceptance of music as not just for women. Rainbow sees these chapters as the equivalent of effective lesson notes for a student teacher.
