Text from The Piano Girl (Piano books for beginners)


The father of a young woman who was preparing to become a virtuoso once
applied to a famous musical educator for advice regarding the future career of
his daughter. "I want her to become one of the greatest pianists America has ever
produced," he said. "She has talent, good health, unlimited ambition, a good
general education, and she is industrious." The educator thought for awhile, and
then said, "It is very likely that your daughter will be successful in her chosen
field, but the amount of grinding study she will be obliged to undergo to meet
the towering standards of modern pianism is awful to contemplate. In the end
she will have the flattery of the multitude, and, let us hope, some of their dollars
as well. In return, she may have to sacrifice many of the comforts and pleasures
which women covet. The more successful she is, the more of a nomad she must
become. She will know but few days for years when she will not be compelled to
practice for hours. She becomes a kind of chattel of the musical public. She will
be harassed by ignorant critics and perhaps annoyed by unreliable managers. In
return she has money and fame, but, in fact, far less of the great joy and purpose
of life than if she followed the customary domestic career with some splendid
man as her husband. When I was younger I used to preach quite an opposite
sermon, but the more I see of the hardships of the artist's life the less I think of
the dollars and the fame it brings. It is hard enough for a man, but it is twice as
hard for a woman."
