From the dust jacket notes: "This book is the fruit of a lifetime of experience as a teacher and it has grown out of the advice which Mr. Merrick has been in the habit of giving to his pupils. Although no text-book can ever be a substitute for the presence of an inspiring teacher, this particular book is distinctively personal. Those who have learned from Frank Merrick will almost hear his voice beside them. And as far as advice handed down orally from teacher to pupil goes, the advice is of excellent pedigree. For Leschetizky, Merrick's master, learnt from Czerny, who in turn learnt from Beethoven."
