The Singing Class focuses on the problems and responsibilities of choralism and collective voice-training. The book first elaborates on the nature of child voice, change of voice among girls and boys, and the points of good singing. The text also underscores the importance of accuracy, words, rhythm, and phrasing in good singing. The manuscript underscores the value and responsibilities of conducting, importance of repertoire, and reading music. It also highlights the proper way of listening to music, value of modern aids to music, qualities and qualification of music teachers, and training of teachers on school music. The text is a dependable reference for music teachers and researchers interested in school music.
