About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1912, this book was written by the renowned British musician and educator Cyril Bradley Rootham (1875–1938). It provides a guide to the organisation of singing classes in schools for male and female children. The text is divided into two main parts: part one is based around a discussion of voice training techniques and the development of choirs; part two contains a series of musical scores for use in classes. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in music teaching, choral music and the history of education.
