Excerpt from How to Study Kreutzer: A Handbook for the Daily Use of Violin Teachers and Violin Students

The purpose of the writer is to present a hand-book which shall make clear the mechanical procedures which the student of Kreutzer, if he would study Kreutzer properly, is obliged to consider; to put in black and white what every teacher dis cusses and shows in the lesson-room; and to so fasten these principles on paper that, unlike the spoken word, they may not go in at one ear and out at the other, necessitating tedious and costly repetitions, but may be referred to in the privacy of the study-room, as confirmations of what the teacher himself has said and done, refreshing the recollection, and fixing their facts on the memory.

It is often the case that in the long Struggle through which the learner passes, technique is acquired unconsciously. The fingers, apparently, grow deft over night; and the amount of skill possessed is not realized until by some chance an account of stock is taken. This fact teachers have frequently noticed; they have, indeed, seen that even the listless playing of a study will benefit the student, regardless of his inattention and apathy. To the fitness of the technical material this is probably due a fitness that brings about its result, anyhow, though not necessa rily in the best and most satisfactory way. But, if good may be gained from a playing of these studies that is mechanical and perfunctory, how much more good may be drawn from efforts that are at all times conscious, and that are carried on with a definite and inspiring end in view, namely: the acquirement of the foundation technique needed in solo, quartet, and orchestral playing? And the possession of this is the result of a proper study of Kreutzer.
