MUSIC FOR SCHOOL PUPILS The belief that the Government's introduction of music into the postprimary school curriculum could have nothing but far-reaching and beneficial effects was expressed by Mr. L. C. M. Saunders, director of music at King's College, when addressing the Auckland Rotary Club yesterday. The Government's proposal to make music a "core" subject was aimed at the 60 per cent of schoolboys who showed either a polite interest in music or a polite indifference to it, said Mr. Saunders. If these bovs could be given an appreciation of the world's great compositions and shown it offered a worthwhile recreational pursuit, then parents need have nothing to fear from the introduction of a little music in the syllabus. Following his address, Mr. Saunders conducted the King's College chapel choir of 30 voices in a selection of songs.
