On Practice -- 

"I often hear parents telling me that they don’t want to force their child to practice the piano. Learning to play the piano is work and requires time. The work is the road that connects a person’s dreams to their reality. While I do agree that it is not prudent to drag a child by the ear to the piano, with that said, children, because they do live in the moment, do not have the necessary skills to manage their time effectively. The only time for a child is now. They exist solely for the present moment and unless that present moment is playing the piano, it’s not necessarily good for learning the piano. That’s where a parent comes in.
Parents need to assist their child in managing his or her time so that the child has scheduled piano playing/learning time. We do not have a genetic disposition for time management. It is a skill and, like all other skills, learnable. Children need to be taught this skill."
