The first book of its kind, Curwen's exposition of educational principles will still impress the modern readeer.
Written late in life, this remarkable book was described by Percy Scholes as offering the most practically valuable study of the art of teaching music in existence.The first book of its kind to appear in the language, it began by summarising principles common to the teaching of all subject, next applying those principles to the teaching of music. Even today the thoughtful reader will find himself impressed by Curwen's exposition of general educational principles expressed in jargon-free terms and supported by excerpts from the writings of the leading educatinal thinkers of his day. The text has been enlarged by four per cent for ease of reading.
