Rocky Mountain News, Denver, Colorado, September 5, 1897 Issue 248 COL F
Mrs. Stringfield's New System of Instruction in Sharps and Flats.

Reduces the Amount of Little Things to Be Taught the Learner.
Description of the System and of the Changes From the Old Way-- It Is Believed She Will Be Able to Change the Present Music System.

The eyes of Colorado music teachers are being directed upon the copyrighted patent of Mrs. Anna M. Stringfield, of Twenty-third and Curtis streets, which simplifies the study of instrumental music and promises to revolutionize the manner of instruction now in vogue. Mrs. Stringfield is a highly educated lady and a graduate of the Jacksonville, Ill., university of music, where she studied with Pognonski, Barlow and Professor Schuler formerly of the College Hill seminary. She carries a certificate from the Kansas City conservatory, entitling her to membership in the interstate associate faculty, and to receive pupils about to graduate. For one year she has spent her time in attacking the present method of music instruction, and her efforts along the lines of improvement, have been finely awarded. Her sole change in the present staff, is to narrow the two central spaces, leaving in each staff, a group of three lines. She treats music from a scientific standpoint, and explains certain matters in point, and explains certain matters in connection therewith that have heretofore been skimmed over as true but unsolvable.
