Your Musical Child

Does your child complain when it's time to practice or do you have to pry the instrument away to get your child to come to dinner? Many parents hope that their children will choose to play an instrument, but some wonder which way is the best way to encourage. And how do you know when to let your child quit? Today we talk to world reknown pianist and songwriter, the Grammy nominated Jim Brickman, also John Dixon, executive director of The Academy of Music in Norfolk, and WHRO radio personality Anthony McSpadden.
