“It is the purpose of the Music Department of this school to give each student, regardless of any special talent for music, an opportunity to become a fairly good singer, to know sufficient of the rudiments of music to enable her to read at sight all ordinary music, and to be able to teach the first principles of singing and sight-reading to the pupils of her school.”
--1892-93 Annual Catalogue of the State Normal and Industrial School
