What do you want to be when you grow up?  Artist.  No!  Dancer.  Absolutely not!  Teacher.  Maybe.  Engineer?  Getting close.  What response is music to a Chinese mother’s ears when she asks that question of her offspring?  Doctor or lawyer!  Okay, so this may be exaggerated and facetious, but I wager each of us know a Chinese mother like that!
