I know it's not the same situation, but when I was young I took piano lessons and developed an interest in classical music. I started learning a few pieces in spite of my teacher saying I wasn't ready. What really got to me though was one day I was working on a piece and my father said "I don't want to hear something that sounds like someone practicing their scales.", indicating that he didn't want to hear classical music played while he was in the house. When I moved out, I was finally free to play what I wanted when I wanted. My first wife and her family didn't object to my choice of music, except my wife's younger sister got very upset when I sat down at their piano and played Fur Elise without music. Apparently she was trying to learn to play the piano and wasn't there yet, when I finished she said to me "I hate you" and stormed off.
