An Improvement upon all other Instruction Books, in Progressive Arrangement, Adaptation and Simplicity. Founded upon a New and Original Plan, and Hlustrated by a series of



[blocks in formation]

THE AUTHOR'S PREFACE. Since the publication of the Modern School, I have consulted many eminent composers and professors, in relation to its plan or system. While bestowing praise on it as a whole, they have invariably disapproved the difficult progressions, and the complexity of many important features, a lucid treatment of which, in a course of Piano-forte instruction, is so indispensable to the suro and rapid advancement of the pupii.

Becoming at length satisfied of the truth of these criticisms, and convinced that great improvements might be made, and were obviously needed, I determined, if possible, to remedy the defects. Profiting by the experience and advice of the best practical teachers in the countr', I commenced a thorough and critical examination of my first Method, and finally concluded that the only remedy woull be to bring out a new work on an improved plan, which I now offer to the public, confident that it will be found much more progressive and complete than any similar work extant. It embraces th principles of all other Piano-forte instruction books, and at the same time many new and important ideas are introjuced, which I trust will be favorably received, and tend to give the New Method a wido popularity.

Specimens of the compositions of celebrated composers, such as Hünten, Bertini, Czerny, Beyer, Clementi, Mozart, Heller, Dreyschock, Mendelssohn, Thalberg and others are interspersed, ly the study and practice of which the student will gain a knowledge, and in some degree imbibe the styles of those eminent masters, instead of confining himself, as is often the case, to the monotonous practice of the etudes of one particular author.

I have endeavored to take the straightest possible path to guide the pupil progressively, stop ly step, from the first rudiments of music, to the highest department of the art of Piano-forte playing I have avoided all unnecessary exercises, lengthy studies and uninteresting pieces, which are so often uselessly employed to enlarge and fill up a book. Most of the Exercises are modelled into the shape of melodies, to interest the pupil and make practice a source of pleasure, instcad of discouraging him with dry examples and indifferent selections.

The plates illustrating the various positions of the arms, hands and fingers, are selected from a popular treatise on the subject by L. KOHLER, one of the highest authorities among the modern professors of music in Germany.

At the conclusion of the work, a chapter devoted to the First Principles of Harmony and Thorough Bas3, a department of music much neglected, although of the utmost importance to every one who is desirous of playing well, especially those who have it in view to mako teaching the Piano a profession. The cxamples, exercises and explanations here given, will be founii simple, interesting and insNuctive.

Estella, the beautiful daughter of Mr Grey, concludes to

give a "Quilting Bee," or "Quilting Party," in which the

ladies who attend are to be repaid for their labors by the

amusements which follow.

"The gentlemen” are invited to tea, but come early, (per-

haps on account of the snow storm.) and take occasion to have

some rough sport in a battle with snow-balls, in which Wil-

liam leads one party, and Jenkins the other. The latter is

soon vanquished, and hides. Mr. Grey comes out to see the

sport, and is well pelted by both parties. In a glow of plear.

ure, the combatants return to the house, where they hold

skeins for the girls to wind from, and watch the ladies in their

quilting, until Estella announces supper, quite to the delight

of Jenkins, who, in view of her excellent skill as a cook, is

doubly strengthened in his intention of “proposing" to her.

Now follow some very pretty love scenes, in which Estella

and William, and comic ones, in which Ariminta and Jenkins

take part ;-during which, however, the company return froin

the supper room, finish the quilting, and have a glorious game

of "hide and seek.” At the end of this they come suddenly

on Jenkins and Ariminta, who, not succeeding in gaining the

hearts of their first choice, conclude to become “Mr. and
