  Music - LoveToKnow 1911   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
This contrast between music and plastic art may be partly explained by the mental work undergone, during the earliest infancy both of the race and of the individual, in interpreting sensations of space.
Theorist and systematizer of musical notation and solmization.
As principal of the Royal Academy of Music (he succeeded Macfarren in 1888) he revived the former glories of the school, and the excellent plan by which it and the Royal College unite their forces in the examinations of the Associated Board is largely due to his initiative.

 American Music Conference
American music education is at a turning point in its history, and poised for a modern renaissance.
After decades of budgetary neglect as an “elective,” music is reasserting itself thanks to a growing body of scientific data that shows how vital it is to a student’s success in all academic areas.
In the end, the curricular role of music education is a question of priorities — of community decision-making.

 Timeline: School of Music: Indiana University
In 1907, Campbell arranged for a recital of the Schellschmidt Quartet of Indianapolis, the proceeds of which established a music fund, “to lead ultimately to the equipment of a school of music in the university.” In 1909, he offered a series of noncredit lectures on the history of music.
Though Dean Merrill oversaw the remodeling of the school's resident music building, Mitchell Hall, enough problems remained (noise carried from performance rooms to classrooms, the building was too hot in the summer, and noise from barking dogs outside the building was unbearable) that a new building became a necessity.
One of his goals was to ensure that music students received a comprehensive, well-rounded education that included a broad base of knowledge of traditional liberal studies (arts, sciences, humanities) and trained students to think critically.

 Essentials of Music - Composers
The folk music of Hungary was central to the music of Béla Bartók.
He was not the first composer to make use of this music (we can see it as far back as Haydn), but he was one of the first to take it at face value, and to exploit its idiosyncrasies.
In 1907 Bartók was appointed professor of piano at the Budapest Academy and he continued his compositional activity, creating works of greater complexity.

 Essentials of Music - Composers
In 1919 he founded a society for performance of new music, and in 1925 returned to Berlin to teach.
Schoenberg's early music was clearly marked by the style of the late nineteenth century, and influences of Brahms, Mahler and others can be seen in pieces such as his Verklärte Nacht.
The music of this period is also marked by a style that is referred to as expressionist, and Schoenberg had contact with, and a great deal of admiration for, the expressionist painters and writers (Schoenberg himself painted in an expressionist style).

 Music of Irving Berlin, Page 1
Whether for Broadway musicals or films, for humorous songs or romantic ballads, his compositions are celebrated for their appealing melodies and memorable lyrics.
The music is OK, but a little disjointed and the lyrics, though nice, suffer from the tune's deficiencies and the two never really come together in the way that a hit song manages to do.
Regardless, from 1907 till 1911, Berlin mostly wrote only lyrics, selling them to publisher and composers such as Ted Snyder, with whom he enjoyed a long association both as a songwriter and publisher later with the house of Waterson, Berlin and Snyder.

In truth, the tunes of these old cartoons are memorable because they were the popular music of the 1920s and before: the drinking songs, the minstrel reels, the cultural memories that filled animators' lives behind the screen.

And as early as 1907, cartoons reflected the general trend: J. Stuart Blackton's short Lightning Sketches concludes with the animator's hand drawing unflattering images of a "Cohen" (Jew) and "coon" (offensive term for a Black man).
