THE ETUDE MUSIC MAGAZINE described itself as "A monthly journal for the musician, the music student, and all music lovers." It was about music, musical performance, and the singers, players, and musicians who fill our lives with joy, sorrow, and entertainment. It was heavily oriented toward classical music and its study plus instruction in its performance and technique.
The magazines are very collectible. Some collect them for the cover art.
The magazine was published as THE ETUDE AND MUSICAL WORLD from 1896-1897, as THE ETUDE from 1897 to 1922, as THE ETUDE MUSIC MAGAZINE from 1922 to 1948, and as simply ETUDE from 1948 to 1957.
This August, 1939, issue has articles of interest on topics such as music makers of old New England and the history of the marimba and also instructional topics such as the diphthong vowels for the singer and bow control for the violinist.
There are also musical pieces in the magazine:
Fascinating Pieces for the Musical Home, including "Larghetto" from Symphony No. 2 by Beethoven
Master Works by Johannes Brahms
Outstanding Vocal and Instrumental Novelties, including "On a Moonbeam"
Delightful Pieces for Junior Etude Readers, including "Little Green Frog"
This 13" by 10 1/2" magazine is in good condition for age. It's 70 years old and fragile. It's printed on lightweight wartime paper, not like the sturdy glossy pages of today's magazines. The cover is intact and firmly attached by all 3 staples and retains its faint tint. Pages 519-522 have been pulled loose and torn. The other pages are firmly bound and clean though aged without writing, highlighting, underlining, and other markings.
