Storyline

Uncle Phil gives Will one simple task: Take Ashley and her friends to their violin lesson, sit, wait, and bring her home again. However, during class, Ashley confesses that she doesn't like the violin, so Will takes her to a pawn shop in East L.A. and swaps it out for a set of drums. As expected, Uncle Phil is furious, but Aunt Viv reasons that he should let her play whatever instruments she wants to play. On top of changing instruments, Will also brings in his buddy Jazz as a new music teacher. Then Will is disappointed when Ashley admits that she doesn't like the drums. Then Aunt Viv is disappointed when Ashley admits that she doesn't like ballet either. She just never told anyone because she didn't want to disappoint them.
