CABINET ORGANS.

CONGRATULATE you on the introduction of a new mu-

sical instrument, long wanted, and sure to find its way

into every household of taste and refinement.

L. M. GETTINCHAIN.

A very efficient church organ, brought within a small

compass, not easy to get out of order, and sold at a

low price. NEW YORK EXAMINER.

BEST of their class of which we have any knowledge.

MORE THAN TWO HUNDRED EMINENT ORGANISTS.

IN every respect far superior in everything of kind I

have seen, whether in Europe or America.

Gen. Wa???quine Morgan.

NEVER have seen anything of the kind which interested

me so much. GEORGE F. ROOT.

EXCEEDS in my estimation every other instrument of

this general class. THOMAS HART???N.

THE favorable testimony of nearly every organist or pia-

nist of note in this country, together with that of cer-

tain distinguished foreign authorities, has forestalled our

appreciative comments upon the excellence and value of

these carefully made instruments. NEW YORK WORLD.

ONCE hearing them will satisfy the most skeptical that they

are just what the church has been waiting for.

NEW YORK OBSERVER .

REALLY very effective and beautiful instruments.

LOWELL MASON.

GRAND accompaniment when the congregation sing.

IRENACS.

AS compared with Melodeona, Harmoniums, ?c, the

Cabinet Organ is certainly superior in quality and

volume of tone, while its power of expression can

hardly be too highly praised. WILLIAM MASON.

NEXT to a church organ, and that a good sized one, the

best instrument with which we are acquainted to

accompany church song.

French or American. JOHN ZUNDEL.

A NEW METHOD FOR THE PIANO-FORTE.

240 pp. Royal Quarto

THE MUSICAL

CURRICULUM

BY GEO. F. ROOT.

This is emphatically a new book in a

new field. It provides instruction and mu-

sic, not only for the PIANO-FORTE, but also

for the things that should be studied wit

it, viz; the VOICE and HARMONY--not

harmony through the eye, but harmony

through the ear; not dry calculations, but

living and beautiful forms. It goes on the

plan that the pupil should know as well

as the chords and harmonies he is in while

playing and singing, as he does the key or

kind of time; and moreover it proves that

those things can be done by preparing

well for each subject, and then by adapt-

ing the instruction, and the music to

the state of the pupil, and making the

steps succeed each other in true progres-

sive order.

   the whole book may be divided into 

tow kinds of lessons--the one for musical

culture and the other for muscular culture.

Not that there is no practice for the mus-

sical taste in the latter, but each is devoted

mainly to its own object. Those lessons

which are designed to awaken, develop,

and strengthen a love for music, and with

which are imparted a knowledge of time,

tone and expression, (Rhythmics, Melod-

ies, and Dynamics,) are written in many

pleasant and tuneful forms, and are called

exercises, peices, songs, etudes, solfeggios, etc.,

while those which are simply for the de-

velopment nd strengthening of the mus-

cles of the fingers, hands, and vocal or-

gans, do not pretend to be pleasant or tune-

ful, but depend upon the benefits they

confer in the way of flexibility and exe-

cution, for their popularity. These lessons

are called TECHNICS, and embrace five fin-

ger exercises, scales, arpeggios, and miscel-

laneous exercises of many kinds and forms.

   The contents of the book may be summed 

up as follows:

Instrumental exercises of reading music, the acquire-
 ment of musical knowledge, and the culturation of 
 the tastes, numbered, but bearing no other names

 than the topics they illustrate and teach ..............224
