"The value of practical transposition neither begins nor ends with the ability to transpose a piece of music into some other than the printed key. Apart from the accompanist or organist, the occasions when such a power is required may be rare; but throughout the whole course of music-study there is a continual demand for the musicianship which it develops."
"Modulation is an important ingredient in music, and knowledge of it should be live and practical. It must be made a reality, through the keyboard. Key-signatures have an importance which warrant their appearance at the beginning of every line of music. Yet a key-signature is a reliable guide only up to the moment when the first change of key occurs."
