I’ve watched this video many times (it’s 3 years old) and it still captivates and inspires me.
Are you struggling to inspire your piano students with classical music? If you’re not… congratulations! If you are, then Benjamin Zander may be able to lend you a hand.
In this Ted Talk video, you’ll learn how to help your piano students develop an appreciation for classical music. Zander’s engaging personality and sharp wit help break down barriers and pre-conceived notions of classical music that his audience and his piano students may have. Check it out… the video is long (20 min 44 sec) but well worth your time!
Will this approach work for a generation of piano students who are more familiar with Bieber than Beethoven? Who knows… but it can’t hurt.
What do you think? Inspired?
