The Boston Academy of Music

The Boston Academy of Music, an institution for higher education, was founded in 1833 by Lowell Mason and George James Webb. It was the first music school of its kind in the USA. Lowell Mason (see elsewhere on this page) was an American composer and music teacher. Georg James Webb (1803-1887) was a British - American composer.

In 1836 the institution published a book with music sheets. One song was dedicated to God. The title of the song was: 'Assign to Jehovah', based on Psalm 29 (digitalized by Google) .
