From an original advertisement in The New Music Review and Church Music Review, Volume 8:
The Most Important Work on Sight Singing Ever Published
A complete work on Sight Singing in four books and complete in one volume, by Samuel W. Cole, New England Conservatory of Music, and Prof. Leo R. Lewis, Tufts College.
For Class Work, Private Instruction and Self Culture
The work has been practically tested in classes at the New England Conservatory, Harvard University, Syracuse University, Institute of Musical Art, and Tufts College. It has the essential quality of "doing the work" and doing it thoroughly.
* * * * *
A comprehensive work in four parts and is by far the most practical text published thus far in sight reading. The book stands alone because it has a well arranged course in sight reading in the bass clef. It would seem as if “Melodia” were going to meet a long felt want in village and city high school. The work is progressive, broad in its plan. and is a desirable work in any music library.
