I hear parents telling their kids that they, too, can be famous soloists if they work hard enough. That, to me, is the worst thing you can do to a child. If you lead them toward music, teach them that it is beautiful, and help them learn, say, ‘Oh, you love music, well, let’s work on this piece together and I’ll show you something,’ then that’s very different. That’s a creative nurturing. But if you just push them to be stars, and tell them they’ll become rich and famous — or, worse, if you try to live through them — that is damaging.
