Noted Pianist Gives Advice to
Students On How to Study Art
Walter Damroseh. dean of American
conductors, will take his famous Now
Tork Symphony orchestra on a trans
continental tour of the United States and
Canada during the months of March,
April and May, th Itinerary of which In
cludes thla city. lie haa for years been
known na th leading educator In Ameri
can music, and as h will present Joeef
Hofmann, tha world's greateat pianist, as
the soloist on this tour srross the conti
nent, it occurred to Mr. Dnmrooch that
students of th piano might be interested
in a "student talk by Josef Hofmann."
and accordingly he communicated with
the rr aiter pianist, who writes as follows:
"Inasmuch as hundreds of atudenfs
have at various times asked me 'what la
the quickest way to become a great pi
anist?" I will say at the very start that
there Is no such thing aa a royal road to
learning no secret trick or patent method
to quickly become a great artist.
"It does sometimes happen that an
artist suddenly acquires wide renown.
In euch a case his leap was not Into
greatness, but merely Into the public rec
ognition of Hi the (rrentness must hav
been In him for some time before the
public became aware of It. If there waa
any leaping it was hot the artist, but the
public that did It.
"The buoyancy of the mind. Its ability
to aoar, so nece.tsary for both creative
and interpretative art, these are never
Impaired by clone attention to detail. De
tails are the steps, one by one, which lead
to the summit of art. We should be care
ful not to lift one foot before the other
rests quite securely upon Its step. On
should never be satisfied with merely
'getting through' aomo difficult paaaags
'by th akin of the teeth' or 'without
breaking down.' but should atrive to be
able to play with It, to toy with It. In
order to have It at one's beck and call In
any variation of mood so as t play It
aa It pleaaea th mind not the fingers.
One should scqulr sovereignty over
"Thla sovereignty Is technique. But
technique la not art It Is only a means)
to achieve art, a paver of th path to
ward It The danirer of confounding tech
nique with art Is not inconsiderable, sine
it takes a long time to develop a trust
worthy technique. But the atudent must
remember that music or any other art,
springs from our Innate desir for Indi
vidual expression. Word-thought
transmitted from man to man by verbal
language. Feelings, moods and emotions
must b crystallised Into tone-thought
and conveyed by muslo.
"Both religion and art needs aa altar,
about which Its devotees may congre
gate. Llast erected such an altar at Wei'
mar, and as Its high priest, stood before
It himself. Rubinstein did thS same thing
In Petrograd. Out of these atmospheres
emerged a large number of eminent ar
tists. Bom of these eminent artists hav
lacked th power In their later llf to
withstand th temptations of quick ma
terial gain and hav descended onto a
lower plan. Several hav attempted to
crate similar Centers In Europe, but all
hav failed because they were not aerv
Ing art, but rather mad art serve their
own worldly purpoa.
"Th artists of talent no longer group
themselves around th ' man of genius.
Perhaps he la not to be found Just now,
Each little celebrity among 'the pianists
keeps nowadays a shop of his own and
all to himself. Many of these shops are
"mints' and some of them produce coun
terfeits. This separative system preclude
all unification of artistic principle, and
Is very harmful to th present genera-

lion of students. It Is hard to fllscnm
mlnate between these cleverly masked
counterfeit "mints' and a real altar of art.
'What Is true of teachers U Just as
true of compositions. It Is with much of
modern muslo as It Is with opium, mor
phine and other deadly drugs. We should
shun their very touch. These musical
opiates are sometimes manufactured by
persons of considerable renown the kind
of quickly gained renown that strongly
scents of the press agent Th student!
should not be deceived by names of which
th general familiarity Is of too recent,
data. Ha should Join th movement to
send some of th 'moderns' back to their
deserved obscurity. -
"I us th term 'moderns' advisedly, for
th true masters some of whom died re
cently hav never stooped to those raeth- .
ods of self-aggrandisement at which I
hinted. . Their plares of honor were ac
corded to them In 'the world because they
war theirs by right of artlstio power,
their genius and th purity of their art
My advice to th student and to -all -lovers
of music Is: Hold on with an your
might to the school of sincerity and 1
chastity tn muslo! It Is saner and safer
than th entlr pack of our present nerve-
tickling ' and nerve-racking odernlats.' -
"Music should always call forth what
Is beat tn us. When. Instead of serving
this divine mission. It speculates' - upon,
and arouses our lowest Instincts for no'
bettor purpose than to fill th pockets
of its perpetrator. It should .' receive '
neither, th help nor th encouraging at
tention of any noble-thlnklng and clean-,
minded man or woman. .
