Ask Alice, with Alice McVeigh

On grooming violin superstars and oriental domination,
with classical music agony aunt ALICE McVEIGH

Ask Alice

? 'Hi Alice,

Have you read the 'Tiger Mom' Chinese-American's bestseller about how she tried to groom her daughter into a violin superstar by refusing her sleepovers, forcing her to practice hours a day, rejected her girls' birthday cards as not hard-enough worked on etc?

Is this woman sick or what?..
