Hi,

The complete subject is 'the family' and I suppose you could call 'family' the simple subject.

Best wishes, Clive
In this sentence "family" is both the simple and complete subject.

TELL ME MORE ABOUT POTATOES.
Hi,

TELL ME MORE ABOUT POTATOES. This is the imperative, it's an 'order'. No subject is explicitly stated.

Implicitly, the subject is 'you', that's who you are addressing. 'You, tell me more about potatoes!'

Best wishes, Clive
the family is the complete subject

the simple subject is music[8]

No, no, anonymous! (Unless you are making a joke. We discussed the recently at length so forgive me if I am over-reacting.) Complete subject and simple subject both refer to the grammatical subject of the verb; that is, the person, place or thing that is performing the action described by the verb (likes). "Music" may or may not be the substantive topic of the sentence, but grammatically it is the object of the verb, not the subject of the verb.
family is the simple subject and the family is the complete one
