Excerpt from The Musician, Vol. 9: For Teacher, Pupil and Lover of Music; January, 1904
In opening our new department Music In The Home, and arranging to present, in our future num bers, musical articles for lay people, the musician is simply responding to a growing demand and a public want. Many times when the writer has been urging friends to take a musical magazine and to thus keep themselves informed upon matters musical the reply has been: Your music magazines are of interest to teachers and students, they do not offer much reading matter for people who are interested in music as a subject and as an art, but who are not performers upon. Or students of, any particular instrument. And this is too true. Our music magazines do con fine themselves a little too exclusively to pedagogical matters, and since a grand work in general musical culture lies open to our music-magazines, we believe it to be advisable to begin, without further delay, to give special attention to the general public. - to per sons who wish to include a certain amount of musical information in their general knowledge. People are realizing more and more that musical culture does not, necessarily, mean to include performance, and people are beginning to be ashamed not to, at least, know something about music. As an art it appeals to every educated person and it is also a satisfaction to be able to listen intelligently to the musical perform ance of others.
Then there is that thought of the future of music in America. We Americans have a large work before us if America is to become a musical country in the sense that Germany is; or indeed in the sense that France, and even England are. They have a music life in the homes and villages and towns that we, as yet, sadly lack. Why may not we do what we can toward the work of making America a musical na tion in the fullest and best meaning of that term.
