away from the classics. He gloried
in showy displays of "fireworks."
His object was apparently to aston

for his name surely will never die.

which the fundamentals of music to

how readily rhythm, key and melody
could be recognized and recorded and
then transposed into any key named.
In. addition, the subjects of sight

history, chord formation and scale
construction were discussed and ex
