Excerpt from Music-Education: An Outline The genesis of Music-Education, and the series of books intended to outline its objects and processes, is not to be found in the author's interest in music or music-study. They spring from his interest in the broader, deeper, more primal problem of education, and from his constantly growing conviction that simplicity, absolute truthfulness, and spiritual consciousness in every aspect of human thought are the prime needs of the hour in all educational work. The development of any specific mode of thought should be the demonstration of a true education. Education means, to the author, revealing to the child, and leading him to exercise, his God-given capacity to conceive and express, that is, make manifest in thought and deed, all pure idea; to unfold the kingdom of God, all good, in the individual consciousness. This means conceptive development, and it must exhibit the qualities of truthfulness, purity, clearness, concentration, endurance, persistence, logic, and unity.
