ST. JOHNS REVIEW
ST. JOHNS, PORTLAND, OREGON, FRIDAY. JUNE 9, 1922.
Recital a Spfendid Success
Mrs. Frnnk A. Rice presented
fifty o her pupito in a recitnl on
Monday evening to one o the
largest crowds ever assembled in
the James John High School.
Every available seat in the large
auditorium and balcony was tak
en, standing room at a premium
and many were unable to gain
admittance and the large at
tendance fully demonstrated
that the people of this communi
ty recognize and appreciate r
musical treat of this kind. As
an artistic, musical and educa
tional event it has never been
surpassed, and St. Johns is fortu
nato in having in its midst such
an able, entertaining and talent
cd'instructor. The program was opened by a
class song and followed by an in
tercsting talk by Mrs. Rice ex
plaining that tho modern meth
ods of music study and iustruc
J tion is to appreciate tho mental
attitude of the child and use
means that appeal to the child
nature and capacity and to culti
vate the love for music and a dc
sire to learn and to consider
their lessons a privilege instead
of a drudgery, and this is accom
plished by the use of rhythmical
forms, songs and games, then by
proper guidance' tho musical in
telligence is awakened naturally
by appealing to tho reason and
Tho Unit number was memory
work by Donald McQill who
wrojc tho first four measures and
played the cntiro solo from
memory. The main object of this
work as well ah to give the child
a musical education is to train
Lucilo Crow demonstrated her
ability with but four weeks
training which was a revelation
and delight to the audience.
The next number wits a duet
played by Nina and Robert
UcIkh. five and nine years old,
showing marked ability and in
terpretation. Margaret McMahon in Iter solo
demonstrated what table tech
nique and hand development can
bo accomplished by a child of
eight under this new system.
The next number was a trio
played played by nino little
girls all under 10 years old on
thrco pianos, this being tho se
verest test that can be given of
cnscmblo work, as it is just nine
times as difficult as if each were
playing a solo.
In the rhythm test tho most dif
ficult measures of a Ilaydcu So
nutu were placed upon tho black
board and to divide these meas
ures correctly tho children must
know the valuo of notes and tho
combinations of notes perfectly.
Margaret and Lucilo Woolley
in the rendition of their duct
displayed their wonderful knowl
edge of chord and scale construc
tion and' showed that thoy tiro
more than mere piano players,
A most interesting subject was
car training and tone thinking.
Mrs. Rico explained how no ot ti
er class of people have so much
need of cultivating their ears as
a music student,
Evelyn Clark skillfully and
quickly reproduced on the board
a melody that she had heard for
the first time, giving the proper
key and rhythm.
Transposition has always struck
terror to the hearts of advanced
musicians; it has never been con
sidered for children, however.
"America" was played by lit
tle Helen Fredli in four different
keys. Margaret Veness played
"The Old Crow" in any major or
minor kej' called for by the audi
ence, wnicn was a revelation as
the young miss played difficult

Interesting facts in the life of
Scarlatti were told by Dcssidcan
Sliacklcford, and Ncvin s "Nar
cissus" was artistically rendered
by Louiso Rice. Jean ICambach
demonstrated her knowledge in
harmony by giving tho principal
chords in any major or minor
key called for. This requires ut
most euro and attention and such
skill is usually attained by ad
vanced musicians only.
The violin class of nine stu
dents rendered "Moonlight Sere

which was followed by a violin
solo by Wesley Nichols aecom

years old. uutli Clark wrote the

that music as a language they

how cadences are subsiding of

times partial and sometimes com

and that modulation is going
