The University School of Music will be provided with an admirably arranged building for its work this year, and unless all signs fail will more than equal the record of the past year. The changes in the faculty which have been made are all well considered, and the quality of instruction given this year will be of the same high grade, Mr. Schmaal, Mr. S. R. Mills, Mr. Abel, of the old faculty, retain their connection with the institution. Miss Pavey has been obliged to change on account of a serious trouble with her arm. The numerous friends and admirers of Miss Pavey will be sorry to learn of this, but the possibilities that she may return later to her post. Miss Janette M, Loudon, an admirable concert pianist, pupil of Sherwood and Xares Schaswaska, resident for many years in Berlin, Germany, and a teacher of experience and great ability, has been secured as piano teacher. Miss Alice Bailey, one of the best young sopranos oí Boston, a lady who has been connected with some of the leading quartette choirs of that city, who has sung in Music Hall with great cess, has been engaged as vocal teacher. She has had remarkable success with her teaching in Boston, and will prove a great attraction. Immediately upon her engagement by the University School of Music, she was secured by the Fort street Presbyterian church, Detroit (Lr. Radcliffe's) to become soprano in the celebrated quartette of that church. Mr. Hermann A. Zeitz, a gradúate of, the Hochschule, Berlin, (in which city he resided six years,) a pupil of Von Moser-Wirth and (the greatest of thera all) Joseph Joachim, will be the teacher of vioïin and piano. Mr. Zeitz is a fine solo performer, a fact attested by a brilliant concert tour in Germany and by every appearance made in this country - and a superb teacher. In addition to the usual work, Miss Lucy K. Cole will have several classes in light singing. This class will afford a fine opportunity for students who do not read with facility, and for those who do not read at all. These classes should be f uil. Prof. Stanley is justly proud of the additions to the faculty. He may be consuited at his residence from 12:30 to 2 p. m. The week begin ning September 18, he will be at Newberry Hall from 9 to 10 a. m. and 2 to 4 p. m. The week beginning September 25 is registration week. The office, Newberry Hall, will be open from 9 to 12 a. m. and 2 to 5 p. m. The indications are that the attendance will be very large.
