No Time For Study

It is a common complaint made by the music lover who must toil eight or nine months of the year that the time for personal study is so limited. At the end of a day’s hard work spent in teaching piano, organ, violin, or voice one does not feel inclined to sit down and study in the evening. Apart from the tempting array of concerts there are social obligations to be fulfilled. So the year runs round and no progress is made in individual art. Was n’t it Robert Schumann who said that music was the only profession wherein its professors toiled like galley slaves during the day and at night found solace in more music? This may have applied to easy-going Germany in the first half of the century, but in America, where the pulse of life beats more fiercely and faster, there is very little time or energy left after a day’s lesson for self-culture.—”Courier.”
