From time immemorial music has played an important part in the life of the race; but it has been incidental rather than purpose. This incidental process meant that only those persons who had extreme talent and the inner urge became musicians. Frequently, these persons were either highly intellectual or at the other extremity of mentality, so the belief arose that musical talent was associated with great intelligence and to be a successful musician one most have wide experience, a liberal education, broad purpose and high ideals; or that a musician was among the most un-intelligent of men, sometimes near the border of idiocy.
