Uneven, but on the whole entertaingly written plea for home music, no matter how amateurish and bad, from the musician's angle. He claims that, even if the results in music are not so good, the result in musical education is immeasureable. He and his fellow strugglers have organized a quartette (flexible in number to be sure) and murder the classics whenever they so desire and have a grand time doing it. He somewhat runs down his own musical equipment, but occasionally gives himself away. A book for the Catherine Drinker Bowen market.
