tral instruments, the children participate in a musical experience which
lays the foundation for future music study.

PRE-INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC

Designed to develop a sound sense of music appreciation that will
lead to the study of a specific instrument. The material in this course
includes the study of notation, rhythm band, creative score writing,
and applied body rhythms.

On completion of the above courses certificates are given.



Dimitri Mitropoulos receives the Honorary Doctor of
Music Degree at the 1948 Commencement Exercises of The

Throughout the school year the promising pupil has many oppor-
tunities to develop poise and platform presence. There are frequent
student recitals to which the public is invited. Practice concerts are
held regularly on Saturday afternoons.

The School Auditorium, seating about 200 people, is equipped
with two concert grand pianos and a modern pipe organ.

Chamber music recitals are held at frequent intervals. They give
opportunity to all students who show marked aptitude and interest.

There are no halls of residence for students, but the school is
able to recommend excellent homes for those who do not reside in
Philadelphia.

Preparatory and Special students may enter at any time during
the school year.

Each applicant upon entering must fill out and sign, or have
signed by parent or guardian, a registration card.

All matters of business, including arrangements for lessons and
payment of tuition, must be arranged at the office and not through
any member of the teaching staff.

Pupils who wish to practice in the school must make their arrange-
ments at the office, where hours and rooms will be assigned.

No pupil may graduate or take part in Commencement Exercises
if he has any unpaid obligation to the school.

Students having won a medal or prize are not eligible to compete
