Beginners Bands Quickly Trained by the Mirick Method

Inside: Speed!

In these days of high speed and keen competition Music Supervisors cannot afford to be handicapped with obsolete teaching methods.

Schools now demand quick results from their Band Directors.

The new MIRICK METHOD enables the Band Leader to meet these modern demands.

With its use a playing band may be trained in as short a time as six weeks!

And yet this Method is founded on approved pedagogical principles!

The company promoting it was Gamble Hinged Music, of 218 South Wabash Avenue, Chicago. According to the company history (they’re still in existence),

Gamble Music started in 1906 at 7 East Van Buren Street in downtown Chicago, and was originally known as "Gamble Hinged Music."  Gamble developed a method of rebinding sheet music with a cloth hinge in the spine to lengthen the life of the music from the wear and tear of turning the pages; this process was called "Gamble-izing."  By 1918 Gamble Music had moved into the McClurg building at 218 South Wabash Avenue, in the heart of “Music Row.”  Gamble also published music and was famous for “Gamble-izing” all of the music it sold, as well as music scores and sheet music brought in by Chicago musicians.
