Springfield High School Class of 1951
Music - The Universal Language
Pupils of the Music Theory class study the technical side of music. They experiment with simple melodies and learn to arrange parts for music.
These music majors are undoubtedly the civic music leaders of tomorrow — the members of our music clubs, orchestras, and choruses.
To accomodate students with a special interest in music, Springfield High School offers courses in theory and music literature, officially called Music Major.
In Music Literature classes the students study and compare the effects of various instruments, the performances of artists, and the types of music, both modern and classical.
