PREFACE.



This little volume is especially designed for the Public or Day-School, but it
is also prepared for use in High Schools, Academies, Colleges, Seminaries, and for
Juvenile Conventions. Having had quite an extended experience as teacher of the
public school always taking music as one of the important branches, we un-
hesitatingly assert that it is an essential element of success to every teacher.
For years it has been a study to prepare and present a book, such as
EVERY DAY GEMS, which we consider adequate; it contains unquestionably a song,
at least, for every occasion; it contains nothing superfluous. The practical depart-
ment is concise and comprehensive.
The success attending the Sabbath School works of the Author, viz: PRECIOUS
JEWELS and NEW SABBATH CAROLS, together with the immensely popular Singing
School books PROGRESS and THE DESIRE, warrants a prediction of a brilliant future
for EVERY DAY GEMS. THE EDITOR.

INTRODUCTORY. 3


THE absence of several pages in EVERY DAY GEMS," of what is termed, usually:
Musical Notation," Theory of Notation," Music and its Notation," The art of Read-
ing Music," "Elements of Vocal Music," Principles of Music," Theoretical Studies,"
&c., &c., will be quite obvious.
What we desire is much practice, and no more theory than will judiciously promote
that object.
The important matter is to possess a voice worthy of imitation. We learn to sing
by imitating others,-Hence: I would suggest the first step for the teacher to advance
would be the formation of a scale of tones after this manner:
Teacher. Sings (using the syllable La) a tone pitch C, (added line below.)
Pupils. Imitate, ( Teacher aiding them.)
Teacher. Sings a tone, pitch D.
Pupils. Imitate.
Teacher. How many tones did we sing?
Pupils. Two.
Teacher. Please sing the first tone we sang.
Pupils. Try it, always with the aid of the teacher.
Teacher. If that was the first tone we sang, what shall we call it?
Pupils. Tone one.
Teacher. Please sing the second tone we sang.
Pupils. Attempt it, teacher assists.
Teacher. What will we call this tone?
Pupils. Tone two.
Teacher. Listen: (Teacher sings, pitch E.) Was that one of the two we sang, or a
new tone?
Pupils. A new tone.
Teacher. Sing the new tone. (Pupils sing.)
Teacher. What will we call it?
Pupils. Tone three.
Teacher. Sing tone three. (Pupils sing.)
Teacher. Sing tone one. (Pupils sing.)
Teacher. Sing tone two. (Pupils sing.)
Teacher. Sing tone three. (Pupils sing.)
NOTE.-Quite an extended and useful practice can be given with the three tones
after which proceed until the scale, or eight tones has been introduced and well practiced.
Thus far, the syllable La, has been used. We will name tone one, Do; tone two,
Re, and so on. Practice as before until the syllable names with the correct tones can be
sung with accuracy and fluency.
Now proceed to represent the tones. Tone one on the short or added line below;
tone two, space below, and so on. Do not represent more than one or two tones at a
time, giving them much practice, in order to be thorough. If thoroughness has been
the motto, it will be well.
The next important subject to introduce is "time." We can not be too careful, or
too earnest in the practice of "keeping time." If you thoroughly understand two-part
measure, take up the exercises following with a determination to CONQUER.

the scale of C, by numerals, syllables and letters. Tone one on the Bass staff key of C
