Let's Make Music (Series) (1953-1954)

David Ouchterlony of the Royal Conservatory of Music discussed principles of music for children in this acclaimed, half-hour program. The success of the program, which had an informal format, hinged on Ouchterlony's own ability to communicate and demonstrate music in a way that was meaningful and not patronizing. Sometimes, the program taught appreciation, as he played music of different types from different areas of the world. At other times, he demonstrated more fundamental aspects of musical theory, as when he showed viewers how to construct an attractive tune with only three notes.

Somewhat later, the program, which was one-half-hour in length, was reduced to 15 minutes and retitled Mr. 0.
