What to Do Next?

It may be safely assumed that all persons who study

Musical Primers, or Catechisms,

BEGINNERS in musical study. Such ones may need advice as To the Next Thing to Do, after the elements are mastered.

It is always a sound and wise thing to do to take lessons of a good teacher, that is if one's object is to be a singer or player.

If, however, the object is merely to get to understand music in a general way, to be able to enjoy it, and to talk about it withou makingistakes, then

Chord Music, and How to Play It,

ON THE PIANO OR ORGAN.

When one plays, on the piano, the letters C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C, that constitutes a Scale. But if one plays, skipping every other letter, as G-B-D-F-A, that is an Arpeggio; and if one plays three or more letters of an Arpeggio at once, that makes a Chord; so called because the letters chord well, or sound well together. If we play three of these letters at once, that makes a Triad. GB D, or B D F, or D F A, are Triads. If we play four letters at once, as G B D F, that is a Chord of the Seventh; and if we play five letters at once, as G B D F A, that is a Chord of the Seventh and Ninth.

Although there are only a few chords used in music, and although one can learn all about them in a short time, one must read chord music and practice it a long time in order to play or read it with perfect ease.

There is no better book for teaching Chord Music than

Johnson's New Method of Thorough Bass.

BY A. N. JOHNSON. PRICE $1.00.

The explanations in this book are remarkably simple and clear. By studying them, and by a patient practice of the numerous chords in the lessons, one cannot fail to become familiar with and able to play all Church Music, Sunday School Music, School Songs, (which generally need a chord accompaniment,) and the Chords which are so numerous in all songs; also all Glees and Part Songs.

After one has learned the construction of CHORDS, and how to play them, it is natural to wish to know how to compose musie, using CHORDS. To do this, use

Johnson's New Method of Harmony.

BY A. N. JOHNSON. PRICE $1.00.

A book as easy as it is possible to make a book on Composition. Any book mailed for the Retail price.
