544 SINGING AND MUSIC



Miss Anne Stevenson

Cearfjer of iHngtns

828 Carnegie Hall New York City



CHave you ever heard a singer whose speaking voice you considered beau-
tiful, while you thought the singing voice somewhat harsh?
CThat voice has not been properly trained from the beginning.
C,Miss Stevenson has made a scientific study under Belari, the teacher of
Madame Nordica, of the whole subject of breath control, muscular control,
concentration of resonance, and the cultivation of mellowness of quality
which gives the ideal tone to the voice.



Frederic Dixon

Ceacljer of i^tano



JOSEFFY METHOD



828 Carnegie Hall New York City



C,Mr. Dixon presents a quick, concise, scientific method for gaining perfect
control of all the muscles of the arms and hands used in piano playing.
This method gives independence of the fingers, and assures speed and
clearness in scales, arpeggios, trills, octaves and chord passages, thus mak-
ing it possible to play artistically and to perform the master pieces according
to traditional interpretation, and to raise the general piano playing to a
very high standard.
