There are two main reasons for the renewed consideration which school administrators are giving to the place of music in the curriculum. The first is the enormously increased amount of music in life generally. This is due, not only to the rapid urbanizing of our population but to the marvelous mechanical inventions, especially the phonograph and radio which make music accessible everywhere. In most cultured homes in our country, there are pianos or other Instruments upon which some member of the family has had instruction, although in many homes the advent of the radio has led to less playing upon these instruments. School lessons in groups are providing that social stimulus which is essential for close application to the study of music. The love of music is deeply rooted in all of us, so right teaching and proper environment can be counted upon to rekindle the enthusiasm.
