Glover, Sarah Ann

1785-1867

English musician and teacher; daughter of a clergyman; was born at Norwich. She was the inventor of the Tonic Sol-fa system of musical notation, which, after some modifications by John Curwen, has come into general use in the public schools of England, and to some extent, in the United States. She has written two works, A Manual of the Norwich Sol-fa system, published in 1845; and a Manual containing a Development of the Tetrachordal system, 1850.
