Because some day, somewhere, your fledgeling musicians will be in a position to make their dreams come true. It may be in the distant future as college students, sitting in the crowd at a lecture by Billy Joel, for instance.
And when that moment presents itself, your kids will thank you for forcing them to practice and for never giving in.
Actually, they’ll probably never thank you. But keep at it anyway!
I love this grainy video of a gutsy college student who lives his dream of accompanying (and slightly upstaging) the Piano Man himself, Billy Joel. Take a look!
