We have found that the more progressive music supervisors in the larger city school systems have already seen its value, as they testify, and we predict that, like all other developments in music education, it will spread to the smaller cities as they become able to take on this phase of the music program. We have seen evidences that the financial stress of the moment has somewhat curbed advance in this direction as it has in many other instances, but everyone seems to be looking forward to resuming the practice as soon as possible.
In conclusion let us say that chamber music in the public school music program is definitely a thing of the future. Its true effectiveness can be judged only after it becomes a universal practice and after teachers are especially trained for that line of work.
