Excerpt from The Music Life and How to Succeed in It

If it is necessary to apologize for the appearance of this volume of Talks about the phases of the Music Life it may be said that no stimulus can be too strong which aims to show the young American musician the serious nature of his task. That the musical profession is more or less characterized by a host of art-mongers needs no proof from me. To offset their unhealthy practices is the duty of the rest. I think it may be said that earnestness in the art-world is a sure forerunner of success, provided one can direct it forcibly under the guidance of educated ability. All these factors are necessary.

Education in Music is not to be had by spending a life-time in looking at it through a microscope. One must get out of it and into other things, now and again, for pleasure, health, and hints.
