Musical Poppycock

Art, religion and music seem to have suffered dreadfully from a kind of jargon purporting to represent ideas, but in reality nothing more than the outlandish gibberish of charlatans inventing words to substitute for their ignorance of real learning.

In music there are kinds of poppycock methods which are nothing more than the tools of fraud. A score of silly touches, and fancy flourishes under new names, are offered for sale by as many impostors. The Etude looks forward with pleasure to the presentation of a fine corrective article by the noted composer-pianist, Mrs. H. H. A. Beach, on Common Sense in Music Study in the October Issue of The Etude.
