Having musical instruments in the house and setting an example by 
playing them yourself is the best way IMO to foster musical interest. 
Like with everything else, kids will imitate your actions.  If you 
practice daily, they'll understand what it means to practice.

I've been a musical practicer and a musical non-practicer and the effect 
of each on daughter's approach to music is pretty obvious.
