Prof. P. Sambamurthi, Head of the Department of Music, University of Madras and Vice-President of the International Society for Music Education, who returned to Madras on June 29 by air from Vienna, after attending the fourth international conference on the role and place of music in the education of youth, said that many countries had inspectors for music who could speak with authority on the subject of music teaching in their countries. He suggested that a central institute for research in music education might also be planned. Prof. Sambamurthi said that the conference, which was presided over by Mr. Gerald Abraham, Professor of Music, Liverpool University, gave a lecture-demonstration on Indian music playing on gotuvadhyam and violin. Prof. Sambamurthi said intensive research in music education was being carried on in many countries of the West. There was keen enthusiasm for classical music. Comparative music was a new subject which was receiving attention at the hands of music scholars.
