More about this marker. Justine Ward née Bayard Cutting (Morristown, New Jersey, August 7, 1879 - Washington, D.C., November 27, 1975) was a musical educator who developed a system for teaching music to children known as the Ward Method. The Ward method of music education was created in the early part of the twentieth century to promote the use of liturgical chant by teaching children vocal music reading skills. Its author, Justine Bayard Ward, was a newcomer to the Catholic Church and to the field of education, yet her approach proved successful and spread throughout the United States, Europe and other parts of the world. The ancient tradition of choral training in the Church, Ward's upbringing, her musical training and aesthetic inclinations, and her zeal in furthering the liturgical and musical reforms of Pius X fostered the ideal environment for the creation of the Ward method (from Wikipedia).
