Excerpt from In Music Land: A Handbook for Young People
The five youngsters to whom this book is dedicated were consulted by its writer to obtain a general idea of what they would most like to know about music; and he has followed their preferences in detail. In the form of stories told at the fireside, he has sought, as the Guide, to acquaint them with matters essential for them to know, as a preparation for their journey through Music Land, which they are just beginning. By the desire of all five, twelve of these stories were told for entertainment, and the remainder for an educational purpose. The Guide sought to tell them in as untechnical a manner as possible so that they might be intelligible to the young travelers, leaving technicalities to be acquired as they progressed on their journey. With the hope that many other children may join the Five and that the observations which the Guide has made during his half century in the enchanted land may be of value to them, this volume is submitted to their perusal.
