Advice to Singers
by Frederick James Crowest
Publisher: Frederick Warne & Co. 1904
Number of pages: 128

Eyes and Ears is a book of melodies for use in practicing sight-singing. It contains about 400 melodies, arranged systematically for education, and sufficient for the first semester or two of a college-level musicianship course.
The harmonica is much more than a mere toy; it can produce rich music that is impossible for many other instruments. It is easy to learn; no need to remember any fingerings etc., just remember that the notes ascend in a certain way.
