Some of the words I most hated when I was a kid: “Have you practiced the piano today?”. After years of lessons and practice, I never got beyond playing the notes, never really could play the music. Finally hung it up as a later teen. I came to believe you either had the talent, or you didn’t. Then later realized many parents use piano lessons and practice as a ball and chain to keep their kids at home.
