" Whoever wishes to apply himself
to music profitably will enjoy a considerable advantage if he falls
into the hands of a good master at the very beginning. There are some
who have the harmful delusion that at the outset it is unnecessary
to have a good master in order to learn the fundamental principles.
For the sake of economy they often take whoever is cheapest, and often
someone who himself knows nothing at all, so that one blind man leads
another. I advise the opposite course. The best master should be secured
at the very beginning even if he must be paid two or three times as
much as others. It will cost no more in the end and both time and effort
will be saved. More can be accomplished in a year with a good master
than in ten years with a poor one." J.J.
